Text size
A freight train carrying garments, fabric, bags, suitcases and other household items from China to London has been launched. The train was flagged off from Yiwu West Railway station in China’s eastern Zhejiang province on the first day of 2017. The train will pass through seven countries and cover more than 12,000 kilometres before reaching London.
The train is expected to reach London in third week of this month after passing through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France.

London is the 15th city in Europe that has been added to China-Europe freight train services. This will improve China-Britain trade ties, and strengthen connectivity with western Europe.

It will also better serving China’s Belt and Road Initiative, an infrastructure and trade network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along ancient trade routes, the China Railway Construction Corporation said.

In January 2016, China had sent its first cargo train to Iran, which travelled a distance of 10,399 kilometres in about 18 days.
