Frozen chicken legs from under Tambov will go to China by rail

Frozen chicken legs from under Tambov will go to China by rail

The Russian Railways Logistics company reported that for the first time, frozen chicken products were shipped to China by rail. The refrigerated container loaded with legs set off from the Selyatino station in the Moscow Region. The legs themselves were produced by Resource Group of Companies in the Tambov Region.

According to Russian Railways Logistics, the shipment was made within the framework of cooperation between three companies - JSC Russian Railways Logistics, JSC Russian Export Center and JSC Slavtrans-Service (operator of the cold terminal at the Selyatino station in the Moscow Region). The corresponding agreement between the companies was signed at the last year's Eastern Economic Forum.

The goal of cooperation is the development of export of products of the Russian agro-industrial complex to China using the accelerated container trains "Agroexpress". Dmitry Murev, General Director of JSC Russian Railways Logistics, is convinced that “in the future we will be exporting full-set“ cold ”trains with Russian meat and poultry.”

The group of agricultural enterprises "Resource" previously exported its own products to China, but by other means of transport. According to Dmitry Antonov, export sales director of GAP Resource, the company was one of the first to receive permission to supply poultry meat to China and was the first in its segment to introduce branded products to the Chinese market. Only in April this year, despite the difficulties caused by the coronavirus pandemic , GAP "Resource" exported almost 12,5 thousand tons, of which 5,2 thousand tons - to China. 

The development of "Agroexpress" opens up wide opportunities for exporters from the European part of the country, according to experts interviewed by EastRussia. However, manufacturers of similar products in the Far East, although they are closer to the Chinese consumer, may feel a negative effect: they will not be able to compete with well-built railway logistics.
