Railway Transport

CF&S offers a full line of rail services that meet your needs and preferences.

Our main routes cover the Baltic States, Azerbaijan, Georgia, Mongolia, China and Central Asia. We use our own fleet to meet different customer needs, which guarantees the security of delivery of the shipment.

Advantages of rail transport:

  • The railway makes it possible to send large volumes of goods at once.
  • Weather fluctuations do not affect the movement of goods.
  • Pre-declaration allows goods to cross the border faster compared to other modes of transport.
  • Fixed tariffs allow you to calculate the cost of transportation in advance for a longer period of time.
  • The mode of transport is safe, reliable, and environmentally friendly.

Platform wagons with a wooden floor 80′ (model 23-469-07) are perfect for transporting long goods, agricultural, and construction equipment.  The length of the platform wagon is 24 m, which gives the possibility to load  up to two 40′ containers or up to four 20′ containers. Wooden-floored 60′ platform wagons (model 13-935A-04) are well suited
  for the carriage of tracked vehicles or wheeled equipment. The platform wagon is 18.4 m long and can hold one 40′ or up to three 20′ containers.

In 161 m3 closed wagons, it  is possible to send various unpackaged and packaged goods.

CF&S is a responsible company. Our aim is to reduce the environmental impact and give priority to environmentally friendly means of transport.
