A new cargo train carrying 50 containers departed on January 12 from Urad Back banner (division) in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and is expected to arrive in Moscow in about 10 days. A new cargo train to Moscow departed from Quanzhou in Fujian Province on January 18. Both the trains are the first China-Europe freight trains from the cities.

The Urad Back banner in the city of Bayannur is a significant hub connecting China and Mongolia and a node city of the new Silk Road Economic Belt. Quanzhou is an important starting point on the Maritime Silk Road.

In 2022, the Urad Back banner plans to operate 55 China-Europe freight trains, transporting about 50,000 to 60,000 tonnes of goods with an annual trade value of 300 million yuan (about $47.1 million) to 500 million yuan, according to official Chinese media.

A new cargo train carrying 50 containers departed on January 12 from Urad Back banner (division) in China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and is expected to arrive in Moscow in about 10 days. A new cargo train to Moscow departed from Quanzhou in Fujian Province on January 18. Both the trains are the first China-Europe freight trains from the cities.

The banner has completed the construction of two logistic rail lines and a large container yard, creating the largest and fastest railway logistics platform in the city, said Hai Gang, head of the banner’s foreign affairs and commerce bureau. An industrial park for warehousing, cold-chain, e-commerce, and logistics is also being planned to facilitate the cargo trade.

The train from Quanzhou is scheduled to reach Moscow via the border station of Manzhouli in about 20 days, saving 25 days of maritime shipping time.
