    MOSCOW, November 20 (RIA Novosti) - Russia, Germany, Poland and Belarus have signed a joint statement on railway freight cooperation, the press service of Russia's railroad monopoly Russian Railways (RZD) said Sunday.

    The four countries' railroad companies intend to switch to a uniform carriage document by next summer, and begin using an electronic system to improve the efficiency of document transfers, the press service said.

    The heads of the countries' railroad companies participated in the joint project "Eurotransit 2005," during which a freight train successfully delivered cargo along the Berlin-Warsaw-Minsk-Moscow route.
