Iran-bound transit trains from 5 Russian nations

(MENAFN) The head of Islamic Republic of Iran Railways (also known as RAI) mentioned the entry of two Russian transit trains into Iran and added that five other trains have been loaded from Russia and are now traveling to Iran.

The second Russian transit shipment for India entered Iran through the northeastern Sarakhs border and was traveling toward Bandar Abbas in the south, according to an announcement made by Miad Salehi on October 1.

The RAI head reported that a freight train carrying 37 containers had traveled through Iran via the route of Russia, Kazakhstan, and Turkmenistan and would still have 1,600 kilometers to travel through Iran via the International North South Transit Corridor (INSTC) before reaching Bandar Abbas Port, where the cargo is going to be shipped to India. Iran received the first Russian freight transit train in the middle of July.

The eastern portion of the North-South railway corridor was formally opened on July 12 when rail transit freight bound for India from Russia crossed the border into Iran at the Sarakhs border crossing.
