HANGZHOU, March 23 (Xinhua) — Europe-bound freight trains departing
from China’s small commodity hub Yiwu have seen surging deliveries this
year, railway sources said Tuesday.
A train loaded with 100 TEUs of cargo departed from Yiwu for Minsk,
Belarus, on Tuesday afternoon. It was the 300th China-Europe freight
train passing through the city since Jan. 1.
The 300 trains have carried a total of 25,058 TEUs of commodities, an
increase of 373.9 percent compared with the same period last year.
Since the cargo route linking Yiwu with Europe via Xinjiang in
northwest China was launched in 2014, Yiwu has handled over 2,900
China-Europe freight trains, delivering over 240,000 TEUs. Enditem
