China launches freight train to Britain

Tags: ,


According to China Railway Corporation, China began operating its first freight train to London on 1 January.

The freight train will commence from Yiwu West Railway Station in Zhejiang Province, Eastern China to arrive at Barking, London. It will take 18 days to travel over 7,400 miles.

The route runs through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France, before arriving in London. The UK is the eighth country to be added to the China-Europe service, and London is the 15th city.

The China – Europe railway is a major strategic development to assist Xi Jinping’s multi-billion dollar ‘One Belt, One Road’ strategy, which was outlined in the China-Europe Freight Rail Development Plan released in October.

The strategy is an infrastructure and trade network connecting Asia with Africa and Europe along old Silk Road trading routes.
