The KAMA Group, the Russian manufacturer of lightweight coated paper, is getting closer to starting the export of its cardboard to China. Rail shipment was chosen as the most reliable option for delivering this type of freight to the customer.

The first batch of cardboard made by the KAMA Group will consist of 63 containers with a total weight of 1,600 tonnes. It will be delivered to China by rail. In late May, the Russian manufacturer began to load the containers with its cardboard products. The first three boxes arrived in Krasnokamsk, where the main production facility is located, on 21 May.
