What modes of transportation exist?
Goods from Asia to Russia are delivered by various modes of transport. One of the most common is vehicles. Shippers choose a transportation method based on the following factors:
- Type of cargo;
- Delivery time.
Air freight is the fastest way to transport goods. The plane will deliver the desired order to you in 5-7 days. First, cargo is transported to major Russian airports: Domodedovo and Pulkovo. There they are drawn up, assembled, and then sent to all corners of the country by road.
By sea, goods are delivered much longer - in 40-50 days, but this method of transportation is the cheapest. Cargoes pass through customs control right at the port, and then are delivered to the customer by land transport.
Motor transport is the most optimal type of transportation from China to Russia. To do this, you do not need a large budget, and the goods will reach their destination within two weeks.
Rail transportation is also very much in demand nowadays. Their cost is quite low, due to the large volume and delivery times are guaranteed. Almost any type of cargo can be transported in trains: from heavy equipment to food products with a short shelf life. Although often railway transportation is intended for the transportation of large volumes of cargo.
