China’s rail freight shipments to Europe set records
According to a recent report in the South China Morning Post (SCMP), the volume of China’s belt and road railway cargo to Europe has set records for five consecutive months as Covid-19 has limited transport by air and sea while causing an increase in the demand for Chinese-made medical supplies abroad.
SCMP says that the latest figures from the state-owned railway builder, also known as China Railway, showed that a total of 1,232 train journeys were arranged from different Chinese cities to European destinations in July. It was the highest monthly figure ever, and an increase of 68 per cent from a year earlier.
