Viktor Popov, chief of the Far Eastern railway, said this Tuesday.
In his words, when the additional three railway tracks are built, modern technologies applied and new information control systems introduced, the Nakhodka-Vostochnaya station will double its capacities for handling container cargoes, i.e., timber, coal, metal, fertilizers, etc.
Upon its modernization, the Nakhodka-Vostochnaya port station will be able to handle 12 million tons of cargoes a year. However, the port can transship 18 million tons of cargoes and, according to its managers, they intend to boost its capacities to 25 million tons.
Moreover, at present it takes 10-11 days for speedy route container trains to deliver containers by the Trans-Siberian electrified railway from the countries of the Asia-Pacific region to Western Europe. The delivery time is to be gradually reduced, Popov noted.
