The train with medical supplies arrived from China to Pardubice

On May 30, 2020, a complete container train loaded with anti-epidemic materials and medical supplies was dispatched from Xi´an City (Shaanxi Province, Central China). The train set was composed of railway wagons held by AO Kedentransservis and PAO TransContainer. The train was heading to the Czech Republic, to Pardubice.

 

 

The transport was organized by ČD Cargo Logistics a.s., AO Kedentransservis, PAO TransContainer, AO Economou Shipping and PKP Linia Hutnicza Szerokotorowa on the basis of an order from the Ministry of the Interior of the Czech Republic. Forty six 40ft containers with disposable medical clothing, masks, gloves and other medical supplies arrived at the terminal in Pardubice on June 14, 2020. The delivered goods are intended for hospitals in Prague and Pardubice and for redistribution to other regions. The train was transported along the lines of the Railway Administration by ČD Cargo.

 

The transport was carried out on the basis of an already ongoing project of permanent transport through the territory of Kazakhstan, the Russian Federation, Ukraine and Poland, which was launched in December last year. The delivery time of the goods by container train from the forwarding station to Pardubice was 15 days.

 

 

Currently, two more complete container trains with medical supplies are heading to the Czech Republic. They are expected to arrive by 30 June 2020 at the latest.
