China-Europe cargo train carries goods back to Guangzhou for first time

May 21, 2020


Abstract : A China-Europe cargo train loaded with a total of 900 tons of goods from Russia arrived in Guangzhou, capital city of south China's Guangdong Province on Tuesday.

BEIJING, May 21 (Xinhua) -- A China-Europe cargo train loaded with a total of 900 tons of goods from Russia arrived in Guangzhou, capital city of south China's Guangdong Province on Tuesday.

It has become the first China-Europe cargo train carrying goods back to Guangzhou since the city launched the China-Europe cargo train service in August 2016.

The train run by China Railway Container Transport Co., Ltd. (CRCT), a wholly-owned subsidiary of China Railway, started the journey from a Russian city, and then entered China through the country's Manzhouli port on China's border with Russia. The whole journey totaled about 11,700 km.

It helped transport the high-quality European kraft paper worth about 706,000 U.S. dollars and weighing 900 tons, purchased by COSCO SHIPPING Logistics Co., Ltd. (COSCO SHIPPING Logistics), to Guangzhou.

Data shows that from January to April this year, the Guangzhou-Manzhouli-Russia China-Europe cargo trains made 17 trips, an increase of 13.33 percent year-on-year; with 749 containers shipped, an increase of 10.96 percent year-on-year.

The return train has significantly reduced the transit time of imported goods for Guangzhou, cut logistics costs, and gradually improved the currently imbalanced imports and exports by the China-Europe cargo trains, according to Wen Haowei, chairman of a Guangzhou logistics company, the operator of the Guangzhou-Manzhouli-Russia China-Europe freight trains.
