On the morning of March 2, at the Putian Container Distribution Center of the Zhengzhou International Hub Development and Construction Company, the Zhengzhou-Europe International Block Train, named “Cainiao”, set off to Liege in Belgium from Putian station. This is not only the first railway express line exclusive for cross-border E-commerce in China, but also the first in China to operate under customs surveillance code "9610" for cross-border E-commerce.

In 2018, the Zhengzhou-Europe International Block Train opened the central Asia line and the ASEAN line successively, which has formed an international network layout featuring multi-port and multi-line, and built a multi-direction hub with the core of Zhengzhou in China. First, it is connected to Japan and South Korea to the east, and connected to the east, middle and west of the Asia-Pacific countries through the sea-land-railway combined transportation. Second, it goes westward to Europe via the Alataw Pass (west line), and is connected to the central Asian destinations like Almaty and Tashkent via Horgos. Third, it goes northward to Europe via Erenhot (north line), and the Suifen River Port has also been opened (northeast line). Fourth, it goes southward to Hanoi, the capital of Vietnam, via Pingxiang, Guangxi (south line) of China.

By March 2, 2019, China Railway Express has 129 trains travelling between Europe and Zhengzhou in 2019 (75 departures and 54 returns) with a total accumulative value of 495 million dollars and a cargo weight of 61.7 thousand tons in 2019. Totally, there are 1,889 trips (1,082 departures and 807 returns) with a total accumulative value of 8.912 billion dollars and 905.3 thousand tons.

The “Cainiao” freight train is not only the first logistic line opened exclusively for cross-border E-commerce in central China, but also the first freight line in the country to operate under customs surveillance code "9610" for cross-border E-commerce. It has opened a new model of cross-border E-commerce parcel transportation of the Zhengzhou-Europe International Block Train, upgraded the innovation of the “integration of transportation and trade” of the Zhengzhou International Hub Development and Construction Company, enriched the connotation of the “Land Silk Road”, and solved the problems of unstable timeliness, high rejection rate, lost tracking information and uncontrollable service of the traditional E-commerce surface mails. This line will further enhance the competitiveness of the Chinese brands and products in the European market.

Since the “Cainiao” freight train has been launched, with the improvement of the mode, the optimization of the operation, the progress of the technology and the development of the infrastructure, it will further boost Zhengzhou to build a global logistics digital operation center and promote the formation of a new logistics pattern in countries along the "Belt and Road".
