Uzbekistan Railways has launched the regular movement of a high-speed freight train to the Hairaton station in Afghanistan, the company said. Part of the train is reportedly formed in Tashkent, and along the way it is supplemented by freight cars sent from provinces.

While, goods are delivered in an express mode: if the previously shipped carriage reached Afghanistan in 5-6 days, now it gets to the Hairaton station in two days. A high-speed freight train will run 3 times a week.

The first high-speed freight train with 14 wagons was sent from Tashkent to Afghanistan on April 16. Along the route, 36 additional wagons with export cargo were added to it. To date, 4 trains have already been sent to Afghanistan, which together makes up 218 wagons.
