China’s first refrigerated container train leaves for Moscow

China’s first refrigerated container train leaves for Moscow
China’s first refrigerated-container train left for Russian capital Moscow from northeastern Dalian city on Monday, marking the opening of a new transport link between the two countries.

The new refrigerated-freight line is 8,600 km long, with trains taking about 10 days to reach Moscow.

The train is carrying products worth USD 150,000 including pears from Hebei, pomelos from Guangdong and garlic from Shandong.

After crossing the border, goods will switch to a Russian freight train in Baikal, Siberia, state-run Xinhua news agency reported on Monday.

The new transport link will shorten the journey time by 60 per cent as the old route used sea and rail travel.

China’s refrigerated-product exports to Russia have been on the rise.
