Transit through Dostyk is limited

From 5 to 15 April, Kazakh railways impose restrictions on the transportation of goods to and from China through the Dostyk-Alashankou border crossing. At this time, only goods in containers will be allowed through the border.

For the rest of the cargo, the Altynkol – Khorgos crossing remains open, but its capacity is almost 2 times lower, which can lead to additional delays on the way. In addition, it is located farther from the Russian border and, in most directions, the path through it is longer.

It is necessary to lay a certain margin of time.

Russian importers and exporters working with China by rail in transit through Kazakhstan should take into account the upcoming changes and lay a certain margin of time for possible delays from the schedule.
