The 2,800 kilometers long corridor uses trains to transport cargo from Haidong to Shigatse and trucks to get them to the land ports of Gyirong and Zhangmu in Tibet and on to Kathmandu.

This railway is supposed to promote the trade between western Chinese regions and South Asian countries, plus contribute to their economy and to Nepal as there are many shops in Tibet that offer Nepali or Indian products, for ex. soap, chocolate, coffee, rice, and others.

Qinghai also connects Europe to Asia and links Chinese south-western and north-western regions.

Yao Jianghong, an official with China Railway Qinghai-Tibet Group, said: "The cargo mainly includes daily necessities, medical materials, and agricultural products. Thirty rail cars were loaded with more than 1,000 metric tons of cargo valued at approximately 1.8 million yuan ($282,000) for the first trip, which took six days."
