On the afternoon of October 6, a China-Europe freight train loaded with 50-cart container cargo departed from a station in Zhengzhou, heading for Hamburg, Germany.

It is the 1,114th trip made by such trains this year, and also the 5,000th trip since the launch of the service eight years ago, said Guo Xinnian, deputy general manager of Zhengzhou International Hub Development and Construction Co., Ltd., the main operator of the train service.
