On 12 May 2020, the first container train linking Shenzhen and Ganzhou with Europe set off from YANTIAN. When arriving at Ganzhou International Port, it will be loaded with cargoes manufactured in Ganzhou such as furniture and go through a customs transit. Then it will continue its journey heading for Duisburg, Germany via Xinjiang.
The new container rail service is a major innovation on the Ganzhou-Shenzhen Intermodal Service for the routes from Shenzhen to Europe, and also an effective measure to reduce logistics costs by virtue of the advantages of Shenzhen and Ganzhou.
The launch of the service has injected new impetus to the international transportation amid the global campaign against COVID-19 pandemic. To ensure the smooth operation of the service, the governments and customs of Shenzhen and Ganzhou have also rendered their great support.
