New freight train launched from Jinhua, China to Netherlands




A new China-Europe freight train service has started from Jinhua in East China’s Zhejiang province to reach Venlo in the Netherlands. The first train on the route departed on July 20. Although the first train under the service did not carry any textile-apparel, the service is expected to boost the textile-apparel trade between the two countries. 

Loaded with 100 cargo containers carrying motorcycles, vehicle brackets, and other commodities worth $3.1 million, the train is expected to reach the Dutch city after a 22-day-long journey. The train will be bringing Dutch-made goods such as newsprint, electronic instruments, and medical equipment on its way back to Jinhua.

The train’s departure marked the launch of the first China-Europe freight train from Zhejiang to the Netherlands as well as the departure of the 400th China-Europe freight train managed by Jinhua this year, said the China Railway Shanghai Bureau Group Co Ltd, according to official Chinese media.

The China-Europe freight train service was launched in Jinhua in 2017. Until now it has handled 22 China-Europe freight train routes, which link over 120 cities. Jinhua had 368 inbound and outbound China-Europe freight trains, which transported 30,368 containers of goods, in the first half of this year — a year-on-year increase of 8 per cent.
