Formation of efficient collection and distribution network

In recent years, the share of new energy vehicles in the overall automobile market has increased year by year. With the resilience of manufacturing and power battery industry chains, China's new energy vehicle exports have shown a growth trend. In the past, the export of China's new energy vehicles was more dependent on sea transportation, which needed to catch up with the shift and the transportation cycle was long. In September 2022, as the China-Europe Railway Express lifted restrictions on the transportation of new energy vehicles, many car companies set their sights on railway transportation. According to the person in charge of Guangwu International Logistics, the transportation environment of the China-Europe Railway Express is stable, the route is stable, and it is not easy to cause damage and corrosion to new energy vehicles, and there are many shifts and stops, which will help the promotion of new energy vehicles in the market along the Belt and Road, making more Multi-national products go to the world.
