Since the beginning of this year, the China-Europe (Wuhan) freight train has made 696 trips, exceeding last year’s total of 155 trips. The number of arrivals and departures has increased significantly.

At present, the Wuhan freight train has expanded from three main categories of goods, including electronic components, display monitors and daily necessities, to 13 main categories of goods, including new energy vehicles, tea and epidemic prevention materials. The source of goods has gradually covered five pillar industries in Hubei Province, including information technology, automobile manufacturing, chemical and energy, general health and advanced agricultural products.

Starting from the city of Wuhan, 47 cross-border transport routes have been developed, covering 40 countries and 111 cities on the Eurasian continent, initially forming an international multimodal transport network linking Europe, Central Asia, Japan, South Korea and ASEAN countries.
