The Japanese are actively booking the capacities of the Transsib and the Far Eastern ports of the Russian Federation

The large Japanese logistics corporation Hankyu Hanshin Express Global plans from January next year to carry out regular transportation of goods from Japan through Vladivostok along the Trans-Siberian Railway to the western part of Russia and further to European countries. According to experts, such a cargo transportation route is much faster and more profitable than their delivery through the Suez Canal. This is reported by the Japanese magazine Railway Chanel.

The main collection point for the route will be Toyama port on the Sea of ​​Japan, where goods from Nagoya, Tokyo and Kobe will be delivered by highways and railways. Then they are transported across the sea to Vladivostok, then the containers by trains through Irkutsk, Krasnoyarsk and Yekaterinburg will reach Moscow and the western part of Russia, from where they will proceed to Poland and other countries (Germany, Czech Republic, Holland).

The length of the entire route will be 10397 kilometers. The delivery time for goods from Japan to Europe is 22 days, which is half the time of transporting goods through the Suez Canal. It is not surprising that the Japanese are actively booking the capacities of the Russian Transsib and Russia's Far Eastern ports. It remains to be wondered why the inhabitants of the Land of the Rising Sun have thought of this just now.

Hankyu Hanshin Express Global has high hopes for the Japan-Europe route along the Trans-Siberian Railway. Preliminary calculations of the company's specialists indicate its fairly high profitability

    Already the Japanese wanted to spit on their master, who killed about 300 thousand people in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, the world began to understand that their king is naked, and there is no democracy in the world, and the United States has only a colt and a carrot, and this is theirs " democracy "for the whole world.

      And what is it that they “wanted to spit?” The US forbade this corporation something, but they didn’t obey? It seems that there was nothing like this, so it’s just your fantasies.

    It is still a very big question whether such a plan will be implemented, since direct transportation by sea transport to European ports is much cheaper, and taking into account at least two transshipments, it is much, and here it will simply be very unprofitable, even taking into account the reduction in delivery time ...

      So, in your opinion, the Japanese have not calculated the logistics of transporting their goods? Time is money, as the ancient Greeks said.

    For ten years I have been offering the technology of aviation movement on super-powerful high-revving high-voltage electric motors (like an electric train - it only flies) from 20000 kW (kW) and more (the hybrid burns atmospheric air); contact and non-contact by laser beam, at a height of 100 meters and up to 20 thousand meters and more; the liner flies at a speed of 1200 to 3200 km / h and more, over a super straight high-voltage power line (0,4-10-110-220-330-500-750-1150 kV.). On the left of the power line (on the side ) a helicopter, an ekranolet, an SVP flies from 300 km / h, to the right of the power transmission line (on the side) a cargo robot-zovod-echelon of paired 20-40 airships with a carrying capacity of up to hundreds of thousand tons of cargo is flying, which itself builds a mega power transmission line route through the swamps of Siberia, the North or Japan-Sakhalin-Moscow-Paris or the Silk Road Indonesia-Hanoi-Beijing-Moscow-Paris or << Between the five continental highway >> South America-North America-Alaska-Asia-Novosibirsk-Europe-Moscow -Paris-South Africa-Cape Town or many others.

      dreamer, 1200 km / h is already supersonic - and 3200 is already close to hypersonic speed - not every Iskander can fly at such speeds

    I somehow calculated the delivery of goods from China to Moscow. So the container came out gold piece by piece. It was much more profitable by sea to Kotka. It's clear if time is an important factor, then it's better this way
