On October 10, the X9010 China-Europe freight train, loaded with 100 containers of smart appliances, car accessories, and other export goods, departed from Yiwu West Railway Station, heading for five countries in Central Asia via the Alashankou Port.

The Yiwu-Xinjiang-Europe train line has operated a total of 2,031 trains and delivered 166,000 containers since its launch in November 2014, an average year-on-year increase of 18 percent.

Local authorities have been making efforts to expand the circle of friends by opening new routes and establishing distribution centers.

Personnel from Jinhua Investment and Development Group set off for Tashkent, the capital of Uzbekistan, on October 11 to finalize the details of establishing the Tashkent distribution center, which will provide important support for the development of the freight train in Central Asia.

It is expected that by the end of October, the freight trains departing from Jinhua will be able to stop at the Tashkent Zaloir Station so that goods can be distributed to surrounding countries and regions through Tashkent.

After the Tashkent distribution center is put into operation, it will provide storage, distribution, and delivery services, solving the last mile logistics issue, said Luo Jianyuan, executive deputy general manager of Zhezhong International Logistics Co, a subsidiary of Jinhua City Investment Group.

So far, the freight train has reached more than 50 countries and regions, with over a hundred overseas destinations, effectively promoting economic and trade exchange between Zhejiang province and various parts of the world.
