China-Germany cargo train launched

BEIJING: China has established its second rail link to Europe, connecting the central Chinese city of Zhengzhou with Hamburg in Germany.

This comes after China launched a direct cargo service between its western city of Chengdu and Poland.

The twice a week cargo train will take 18 days to complete the journey taking half of the time required to transport goods by sea. The 10,214 km journey begins at the inland port of Zhengzhou and passes through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus and Poland.

Rail movement to Germany would be hugely cheaper compared to transportation by sea, air or road, officials said. Three other foreign rail links to Moscow, Almaty in Kazakhstan and Lithuania will be established by China by end of this year.

"It can save a lot of time and money to import German electronic products, construction machinery, vehicles and parts, medical equipment and other high value-added products through this new international rail route," said Karl-Heinz Emberger, managing director of Central and North China, DB Schenker (China) Ltd, the logistics arm of Deutsche Bahn, Germany's national railway, said.
