The train departed from Pingxiang Railway Station in Guangxi, in southern China, and reached the Xi’an dry port, in the east of the country for assembly. The train was then sent to Kazakhstan via the China-Europe Express. The main products transported by this vehicle are electronic parts produced in Vietnam.
According to China Central Television (CCTV), in the past, most of the electronic parts produced in Vietnam were transported to Central Asian countries via the sea. However, due to the restrictions on the outbound plan and the unstable shipping time, the whole process took about 50 days.
This new route can compress the itinerary from Vietnam to the Central Asian market to about 25 days. This is not the first time that Vietnam has taken the China-Europe Express train to transport goods through the Eurasian continent.
