LDZ to trial India – Latvia intermodal service

LATVIAN Railways (LDZ) has announced plans for the trial operation of a new largely rail-based container service connecting Riga with Mumbai in India.

The planned trial will involve transporting containers by sea from the port of Mumbai to Banda Abbas in Iran for onward transport to Latvia by rail. A 15-day transit time is being targeted.

LDZ believes the development of the International North – South Transport Corridor will offer South Asian manufacturers an alternative route to Western Europe using rail and then Baltic Sea shipping from Riga to Germany and Scandinavia.
