A new route of the China-Europe freight train, from Chengdu, Sichuan province to Moscow, Russia, is expected to open by the end of 2016. Tao Xun, the general manager of Chengdu Industry Investment Corporation, disclosed the plan at a promotional event on Nov. 2.

Additionally, Tao stated that future China-Europe freight routes will cover the economic circles of the Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta and Bohai Sea Rim, connecting with Hong Kong, Macau, South Korea, Japan and other ASEAN nations.

For routes starting from Chengdu, nodes in Poland, as well as terminals in Germany and Netherland, have been established. The lines will expand to 10 more terminals, including Paris, Madrid and Milan. Meanwhile, overseas warehouses and affiliated agencies will set up in interior cities along the lines.

Recently, Chengdu has been operating two routes for the China-Europe freight train. The middle route to Lodz, Poland opened in April 2013, by way of Kazakhstan, Russia and Belarus. The southern route to Istanbul opened in September 2016, connecting Turkey, Iran and Georgia.
