539 China-Europe freight trains set out from Zhengzhou in H1

July 30, 2019


Abstract : Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, saw 539 China-Europe freight trains set out in the first half of 2019, up 90.5 percent year-on-year, according to the local customs.

BEIJING, July 30 (Xinhua) -- Zhengzhou, capital of central China's Henan Province, saw 539 China-Europe freight trains set out in the first half of 2019, up 90.5 percent year-on-year, according to the local customs.

During the same period, cargoes transported by the freight trains surged 57.9 percent year-on-year to 230,000 tonnes, with total value of 10.79 billion yuan, up 11.5 percent from the last year, data from local customs showed.

Meanwhile, the delivery of cross-border e-commerce product trade undertaken by the freight trains totaled 3.26 million transactions by the end of June 2019, which have enhanced Zhengzhou's cross-border e-commerce development, according to the local customs.

It is noted that the inbound and outbound freight trains have passed through five cross-border passes, such as Alashankou Pass and Horgos Pass in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous, connecting Zhengzhou with more destinations along the freight train routes.

The local customs in Zhengzhou granted priority on inspection for the products with special requirements for temperature and humidity, which has enhanced the customs clearance efficiency for the freight train further.

Thanks to the inspection priority, the freight train delivered  ice-cream products from Belarus to Zhengzhou for the first time in June of the year, enhancing the trade between China and Russia.

By far, Zhengzhou customs handled a total of 1,400 imported finished automobiles covering more than ten models of cars since the operation of finished automobiles import. This was attributed to the optimized customs clearance procedures as well as the improved availability for intermodal transportations conducted by Zhengzhou customs. (Edited by Jiang Feifan)
