A new Sino-European freight train connecting Chengdu in the southwestern Chinese province of Sichuan with St. Petersburg in Russia is in operation. The first freight train on this route left Chengdu on 21 February and carried the funds needed for key "One Belt, one Road" projects.

“The train is expected to arrive in St. Petersburg in 13 days, which is much faster than the one to two months it takes to transport ships,” said Deputy CEO of Chengdu International Railway Service Co. Vang Weikun.

During the spring festival, the number of Sino-European freight trains at Chengdu International Railroad increased by 33.3 % compared to the same period last year, according to the port's board of directors.
