Seeds from China’s Gansu Get Rolling on Sea-Rail Transport Route Linking with Eu...

A train carrying seeds departed from Jinta Railway Station in Jiuquan of northwest China's Gansu province on November 17 to head for Rotterdam, the Netherlands, the very first trip along the combined Sea-Rail transport route connecting the province and Europe via Qinzhou Port on the South China coast, injecting fresh impetus for the quality development of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor.

The province's first outbound Sea-Rail cargo train loaded with 10 standard containers of 166 tons of vegetable and flower seeds were transported to Guangxi's Qinzhou Port by rail via the New Western Land-Sea Corridor, and then to Rotterdam Port. The shipping containers were not changed during the whole trip and it will take about 30 days to transport the cargo to its destination.
