A freight train loaded with over 60 second-hand vehicles left Chengdu, capital of the Sichuan Province in south-west China on Sunday. The vehicles will be in the Russian market in about two weeks.
An Import and Export Corporation in Chengdu is planning to export 60 of the country’s own-brand second-hand vehicles to Russia via the Chengdu International Railway Port. The company has also signed contracts with dealers from 10 other countries including the U.S., Germany, Uruguay, Thailand, and Turkey.
Chengdu has been registered as one of China’s first 10 pilot cities to export second-hand vehicles. Five ‘pilot’ enterprises in Chengdu have signed intention orders to export over 1,500 vehicles to Russia, Cambodia and Kazakhstan.
