Yang Xinzhong said that in order to improve the operation quality and efficiency of China-Europe freight trains, Lianyungang focused on building 6 high-quality freight lines, covering 104 international freight stations. The categories of transported goods have been expanded to various types of goods such as building materials, household appliances, electromechanical, grain, and minerals, forming international multimodal transport modes such as sea-rail combined transport, rail-air combined transport, and rail-road combined transport.

At present, after the international transit train arrives at Lianyungang, it can be directly unloaded and shunted to the site. Station loading and delivery, the overall transit efficiency is increased by 75%, and the enterprise cost is reduced by 60%. In the next step, we will actively strive for the support of the train dispatch plan and planned trains, continuously expand new channels, new sources of goods and new projects, and improve the competitiveness of international trains.Editor/XuNing
