HANGZHOU, July 5 (Xinhua) -- The number of Europe-bound freight trains departing from the city of Yiwu in east China reached 296 in the first half of this year, up 151.1 percent year on year, railway sources said Sunday.

By Friday, a total of nearly 25,000 TEUs of commodities had been transported by freight trains from Yiwu to Europe.
