URUMQI, Feb 27 (FAM) – A freight train on Saturday left a major logistics center in northwestern Chinese city of Urumqi for Kazakhstan’s Almaty on a new route.

Carrying auto parts, clothing, and household goods, the train crossed the China-Kazakhstan border at Xinjiang Autonomous Region’s Horgos instead of Alataw Pass on the old route. Travel time between Urumqi and Almaty is shortened by almost 25 percent to 30 hours.
