A new freight train route which links Harbin, the capital of northeast China’s Heilongjiang Province, with Tilburg in the Netherlands, has been initiated. This will be the first China-Europe freight train service connecting the border province with a city in the Netherlands.

A freight train loaded with its cargo of 1,300 tonnes of amino acid in 55 containers departed from the station of Harbin international container center on Thursday. It should arrive at Tilburg in 15 days.

“Compared with sea shipping, the new cargo train service will cut short the delivery time by two-thirds with the distance shortened by half,” said the head of the station.
