BEIJING, April 15 (Xinhua) -- A China-Europe freight train loaded with 61 containers carrying chairs, towels, valves, portable air conditioners and other products, departed from Manzhouli, China's largest land port, to Poland on April 13 , marking the 10,000th freight train to cross the port.

In the first quarter of this year, a total of 951 cross-border freight trains passed through the port, an increase of 60.4 percent year on year.

At present, there are 52 routes of China-Europe freight trains via the land port, which help promote the trade between 60 Chinese cities  including Tianjin, Changsha, Guangzhou, Suzhou, etc., and 28 cities in 13 European countries.

The global sea and air transport capacity has been severely affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, while the China-Europe freight trains, due to advantages such as short freight time, low price and high efficiency, have played an important role in ensuring smooth logistics and stable material supply in China and European countries.
