[ July 24, 2015   //   ]

The first freight train from China arrived at the Rail Service Center Rotterdam on Thursday evening (23 July). Carrying 80 containers, it departed from Kumming on 5 July and traveled via the Zabaykalsk with Russia, – Belarus Brest/Malaszewicze (Polish border) and Malaszewicze (Poland) where the units destined for Rotterdam were loaded onto European gauge wagons.

China has set up a Silk Road Fund which has $40 billion at its disposal to invest in infrastructure along the ‘new silk road’. The port of Rotterdam adds that it will help boost it as a European logistics hub, including traffic to and from the UK.
