URUMQI, Jun 12 (FAM) – The first refrigerated-container train in northwest China’s Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region left Horgos Saturday for the eastern Chinese city of Hangzhou.
The train with 40 refrigerated-containers is 620 meters long. It carried about 1,160 tonnes of concentrate juice from the border port of Horgos to Hangzhou.
Previously, Xinjiang mainly relied on the highway system for fruit juice transport. The new train route will help local companies reduce logistics costs.
