|Aug.18, 2016 -- The first cargo train linking China’s Qinghai Province with Europe is to open on September 8, 2016, which will boost sales of Qinghai’s featured products in European markets.
The cargo train will leave from Xining, capital city of Qinghai province, and pass through China’s Gansu Province, Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany to reach Antwerp of Belgium.
It will travel 9,838 kilometers and reduce the China-Europe transportation time from about two months via shipping to just 12 days.
"Our products have a very competitive edge in European markets and embrace a large number of clients. The reduction of transportation time will greatly increase orders," said Lang Haiming, manager of a carpet factory in Qinghai province.
The first train will carry Qinghai’s featured products including woolen carpets, carpet yarn, wolfberry to Europe.
