A freight train service between China’s northeastern city of Harbin and Europe launches on June 13, opening a new trade route between the continent and nation.

The customs in Harbin, capital of Northeast China’s Heilongjiang province, announced they had handled 411 China-Europe freight trains in 2020, an increase of 99.51 percent year-on-year amid the COVID-19 pandemic.

The containers on the trains grew 127.87 percent year-on-year to 27,360 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent unit), according to customs.

The customs provide round-the-clock reservation service of clearance for the operators of the freight train services, while taking a series of measures to improve the clearance efficiency.
