Russian Railways Logistics handles complex cargo from Finland in port of St. Petersburg
Russian Railways Logistics successfully handled complex cargo, namely feldspar delivered from Finland, directly from sea vessel into open wagons on the territory of the port of Saint-Petersburg. Feldspar is quite bulky and loose, thus the company prepared cargo handling equipment and rolling stock before providing transportation and handling services.  2013-11-06_SPb-feldspar_02.jpg
