The first ever China-Europe freight train with reefer containers departed from Xiamen last Wednesday (Oct. 19). The train, which will travel from East China’s Fujian Province to Moscow, will transport vegetables, fruits and other food products, and arrive in Moscow 15 days after crossing the border. The freight train is equipped with reefer containers whose location can be tracked by satellite navigation, while real-time temperature and humidity in containers can be monitored online at any time.
An official from China Railway Nanchang Group said that the train can help deliver vegetables and fruit from Fujian to overseas markets in the fastest and most efficient way. He added that rail authorities will actively promote the operation of such freight trains on China-Europe route, expand the breadth and depth of the reefer container logistics service network coverage, and meet the diversified transportation needs of customers.
