RZD Logistics and Far East Land Bridge (FELB) have started trialling container transports between the two cities via Mongolia.
The first train set - consisting of 42 containers loaded with consumer goods, equipment, spare parts, and electronics - left Yantai on 28 June.
The parties intend to turn it into a regular, weekly, 16-18 days of transit time service as of August.
Cargo traffic will be in the future also channelled through Zabaykalsk in addition to the current setup which uses the crossings in Erlian and Naushki.
