BEIJING, Dec. 12 (Xinhua) — 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. Enditem
