Founded in 2006 as a subsidiary of RZD (Russian Railways), TransContainer is a Russian intermodal rail operator that is now 99.8% owned by the Delo Group. The German subsidiary joined the LAG e.V. in 2020.
Calling 88,595 containers and 32,246 container cars their own, TransContainer’s fleet is the largest in Russia, and is operational throughout Eurasia’s 1520-mm gauge rail network. In addition, TransContainer has its own terminals in Russia (42) and Kazakhstan (19).
TransContainer’s stated business model is to create an integrated transport and logistics group providing container and logistics services throughout Europe and Asia. Each new shipment of rail freight from China and every joint venture expanding TransContainer’s reach in intermodal transport brings them one step closer to this goal.
In recent years, TransContainer has established itself as the leading operator of container trains through and to Russia and Central Asia. Furthermore, TransContainer organizes trains from China to Europe via Russia and vice versa.
