1000 trains per month: “New Silk Road” is gaining momentum through Russia


Container shipping China - Europe (in both directions) for the first time in a month crossed the mark of 1000 trains. China National Railway Group informed about this achievement.


It is noted that in May 2020, 1033 railway freight trains were sent from China to Europe and received in the opposite direction. If you count in annual terms, the growth was 43%. In May 2020, 93 thousand TEU cargo was transported.

In the direction of China - Europe, 556 trains were sent, which transported 50 thousand TEU of cargo, which is 52% more than in May 2019. The container load factor was 99,9%. In the direction of Europe-China, 477 trains were sent, which transported 43 thousand TEU of cargo, which is 44% more than in May 2019. The container load factor was 96,4%.

For clarity, the Twentyfoot Equivalent Unit is a unit of measure equal to the volume of one 20-foot container (the volume of one 40-foot container is 2TEU). The above reporting clearly demonstrates that the New Silk Road through Russia is gaining momentum, despite obstacles.

The Chinese comrades emphasized that the smooth and trouble-free operation helped to ensure the stability of the supply chains of various goods, contributed to the development of trade and helped states in the fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. The train schedule was optimized, which allowed to increase their number while reducing shipping by sea and air during the crisis.

In May 2020, the main goods sent to Europe from China were anti-epidemic drugs, medical equipment and personal protective equipment.

    But these huge loads could have gone through Ukraine if the patriots of Ukraine, and not the United States, sat in Kiev ...

      Ukraine is rich in fools!
      Therefore, they do not need money. They are fools - wealth.

    And again, I am talking about economics. If everything turns out so well for the railway, maybe they will lower the cost of travel by train? People should feel that life is getting better!

    In our universe EVERYTHING submits to dictatorship. To violence. Coercion. An electron does not have brains, but if it is not kicked by a magnetic or electric field, then, you bastard ..... The planet itself does not move where it wants, but where it will be pulled by gravity.
    Russian Railways, why suddenly, without external influence, take such a step? Neither the competitor, nor the union, nor the president is moving for this. There is simply no competitor, we have a cardboard union, and the president has a good budget income from prices and from the profits of Russian Railways.
