New international rail services for Chongqing

8 February 2012
Chongqing municipality is to start two new international rail cargo routes this year, reported Xinhua.

Container transport will be authorised for a service that begins in Chongqing and runs via the provinces of Guizhou and Yunnan and then on to Burma and Vietnam, before ending at the Indian Ocean, said Ma Zhongyuan, head of Chongqing’s customs office. The service is designed to facilitate exports from southwestern China to Asean member countries.

An existing railway service linking Chongqing with the city of Duisburg in Germany will be extended to the Belgian port city of Antwerp. The route will shorten the time it takes to ship goods from Chongqing to Belgium to about 16 days, 20 days fewer than the railway/ocean route, according to Ma.

China and Belgium also agreed to simplify custom inspection procedures, allowing goods exported from Belgium to China to go through just a single inspection in Belgium, Ma said.
