Rail Freight Service - Alternative routings 

Given the current crisis in Ukraine and sanctions imposed upon Russia, alternative routing for rail freight can be used via the middle corridor.

This service does not transit through Russia.

With the lockdown in Shanghai, air and ocean freight capacity are expected to be severely impacted, this will also impact the cost for these services.
