(ECNS) – The first China-Central Asia freight train with 100 freight containers left the port of Guangzhou in southern China for Almaty, Kazakhstan, on Saturday.

It marks a new international logistics channel for goods from the Pearl River Delta, a production center to go global.

The train carried a variety of goods, including home appliances, everyday necessities, and hardware products valued at approximately $ 1.7 million.

The goods will be distributed to the neighboring countries of Kazakhstan two weeks after arrival in Central Asia.

The new route not only reduces reconstruction and costs, but also improves the efficiency of international freight transport and expands and deepens the logistical connectivity between Guangzhou and Central Asia.

The port of Guangzhou has launched 10 international trains, including nine to Europe and one to Asia. They contained a total of 1,000 TEU raw materials, ranging from electronic products and raw materials for industrial production to clothing and household appliances.
