The throughput of the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) Sino-Europe trains from Shenzhen to Europe reached 26,967 tons in September, nearly double year on year, data from Shenzhen Customs showed.
Data also showed that a total of 31 GBA Sino-Europe trains operating between the GBA and European countries operated in September.
Recently, a train carrying 389 tons of freight, including sets of digital TV displays and spare parts, gas heaters, vehicle lights and reeling machines departed from Pinghu South Railway Yard to Belarus via Manzhouli Checkpoint. This marks the operation of the 91st Sino-Europe train for export goods this year.
Sino-Europe freight trains have become a stabilizer and accelerator for Guangdong Province’s trade with European countries, according to customs.
Electronic products and high-added value home appliances have been sent to Europe via train freight. The trains play a vital role for GBA enterprises to expand to the overseas market and reduce comprehensive costs, while ensuring timely deliveries and stable logistics and supply chains, according to Shenzhen Customs.
So far, over 3,000 enterprises in Guangdong had exported their products via train, and since the first train was put into operation on Aug. 18, 2020, 6.7 billion yuan (US$933 million) worth of cargos have been transported to 38 countries in Asia and Europe.
