It is important to take into account that rail transportation from China to the Russian Federation has a number of features. First of all, this concerns the need to reload products, since the railway gauge in China differs from the standards adopted in Russia and the countries of the former CIS. Secondly, the average delivery time is from 15 to 32 days, depending on the route. Thirdly, the final cost of transportation is influenced by many factors, and one of them is the departure station. The most profitable option is from the freight railway station, which is subsidized by the Chinese government:
- In the Southeast, this is Ganzhou;
- In the East - Linyi, Nanjing, Suzhou;
- To the south is Guangzhou.
