Statistics from Changsha Customs show that a total of 71,600 tons of goods valued at US$463 million were cleared and exported via the Hunan-Europe freight train line in the first ten months of 2017, up 2.1 folds and 1.1 folds year on year, respectively.

 

The freight train service, which links Changsha, the capital city of Hunan Province and Duisburg in Germany, began operation in October 2014.

 

Trains leave China via Manzhouli Port in Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and reach their destination after a 15-day-long journey, carrying goods such as tea, garments and electromechanical products for export to 13 major cities in countries along the Belt and Road routes, including Russia, Belarus, Germany, Poland, Kuwait, Ukraine and Hungary.

 

The returning trains bring commodities including wine, milk powder, steel products and hardware accessories.
