War risk stops IKEA Vietnam-Europe box train

2022 03 15

A FREIGHT train linking Danang, Vietnam and Europe was recently suspended due to concerns over the Russian invasion of Ukraine, according to the Vietnam Railway Corporation (VNR), reports fibre2fashion.com, of Malkapur central India.

The rail freight service was to be launched early this month. The train consists of 23 FEU moving IKEA-branded furniture to Europe, said the report.

The train would depart from Danang to Hanoi's Dong Anh station, stop at the Dong Dang international railway station in Lang Son Province for customs clearance and then travel on to China's Zhengzhou station before connecting to the Asia-Europe rail line to get to its destinations.

Due to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, IKEA suspended the plan, according to Vietnamese media reports. Trains from Vietnam to Russia and China have not been affected though.

In July 2021, VNR operated the first container train from Hanoi to Belgium. It currently runs three container trains from Hanoi to Europe per week.
