Freight train service resumes between east China, Central Asia

March 25, 2020


Abstract : A freight train loaded with 100 TEU of goods left recently from Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province, and bounded for Alma Ata, Kazakhstan, marking resumption of the regular China-Europe freight train service between Hefei and Central Asia since the COVID-19 outbreak.

BEIJING, March 25 (Xinhua) – A freight train loaded with 100 TEU of goods left recently from Hefei, capital of east China's Anhui Province, and bounded for Alma Ata, Kazakhstan, marking resumption of the regular China-Europe freight train service between Hefei and Central Asia since the COVID-19 outbreak, reported Chinanews.com recently.

The freight train is carrying cargoes mainly from cities of Hefei, Huangshan, Wuhu, and Xuancheng in Anhui, heading for three stations around Alma Ata, and it plays a critical role in promoting the development of export-oriented economy in the province.

To ensure the smooth export of goods, local customs and some relevant departments contact with the local export enterprises to jointly solve the difficulties in the process of customs clearance amid the COVID-19 epidemic.

By far, there are two freight train routes in operation between Asian countries and Hefei, with a departure frequency of two trips per week. Hefei had run a total of 54 China-Europe freight trains since the beginning of this year, of which five of trains were sent out to Central Asia.
