Number of China-Europe freight trains up 64% in November
The freight train service between China and Europe is helping boost cross-border cargo capacity during China’s Singles Day shopping spree period this month.

The number of China-Europe freight trains hit 1,238 in November, up 64 percent year-on-year, data from the China State Railway Group Co Ltd showed.

The freight trains have played a crucial role in helping stabilize the international logistics supply chain, transporting 115,000 20-foot equivalent units of cargo last month, up 73 percent from a year earlier, according to the company.

Increasing demand for the freight trains came amid China’s economic recovery and limited international air and sea transport during the COVID-19 pandemic.

The company pledged more measures to meet surging international logistics demand during the Christmas and New Year’s season.
