As of March, FELB (Far East Land Bridge Ltd.) is launching an open/public train named “East World Express” with weekly departures from Duisburg. The eastbound route from Duisburg in Germany will reach out to the eastern destinations of Russia, the CIS region, China, Japan and South Korea with transit time varying from 14 to 21 days.
The stretch will be operated within the framework of cooperation with duisport, which in its turn provides various additional services such as custom clearance, storage, handling, and packaging as a complement to the “East World Express” service.
After a successful test run of the train, the main objective to set up stable weekly departures using this relation and to strengthen the transport ties to the eastern market has now been fulfilled.
Additionally, FELB has opened a new office in Duisburg which will strengthen the sales and operational work on site. Only 4 weeks after opening, one of the first own direct trains to/from Duisburg towards Brest within the European railway network was launched.
By expanding its activities on the lucrative eastern market with the “East World Express service”, FELB not only fulfils its own promises, but also raises the bar of achievements within the logistical sector in general.
