Boom of railway traffic China - Europe

Everything is fine with us!!!

China-Europe rail freight is bucking the pandemic-wide trend, boasting double-digit growth this year.

According to China Railway Group, 2,920 trains ran between January and April, carrying 262,000 TEU, up 24% year on year. Last month alone, westbound volumes were up 58% and eastbound 29%, totaling 88,000 TEU.

This growth is primarily due to high prices for air transportation (5 times increase in prices compared to the previous year) and restrictions on the passage of borders by trucks.
