WUHAN — A cargo train loaded with Chinese liquor left the central China city of Wuhan bound for Duisburg, Germany on Oct 26.
It is the first Wuhan-Europe cargo train carrying Chinese food products to Europe. The train is expected to reach the German city in around 14 days.
The Wuhan-Europe freight route, which was launched in 2012, is an express cargo train linking Wuhan with more than 20 European cities.
As of Oct 20, some 277 trains carrying a total of 25,000 containers have traveled the route this year.
A number of mainland cities — including Chongqing and Chengdu in Southwest China; Wuhan, Zhengzhou and Changsha in Central China; and Shenyang in Northeast China — have rail freight services to Europe.
