RCG is developing multilateral relations in Central Asia

Together, the Rail Cargo Group, Port of Baku and Cabooter Logistik Hub Venlo are making their mark along the southern Silk Road and are signing a declaration of intent for the joint expansion of the Transcaspian Silk Road.

As the leading European rail logistics provider in Central and Eastern Europe, Rail Cargo Group possesses a highly competitive and comprehensive network that extends from the northern and southern ports via Russia and Turkey to China. With increasing customer demand for alternative solutions to the established sea route, RCG has continuously expanded its range of freight transport services to Asia in recent years. Due to current congestion at the Malasewicze-Brest border station (Poland-Belarus), we are working together with the Port of Baku and the Venlo logistics hub to accelerate the development of the Southern Silk Road. This route runs via the Transcaspian Sea to Central Asia. Signing the Memorandum of Understanding lays the foundation for developing strategic cooperation to establish a new Eurasian corridor. The aim of this new partnership is to actively promote the Eurasian corridor by connecting it to the European rail freight network and thus to further increase the attractiveness of rail freight transport. Port of Baku in Azerbaijan - an important logistics hub - will play a central role in this. In addition, the Cabooter Group with its logistics centre in Venlo is developing into an important hub for transport connections from Europe to Asia.
