New freight train from China through 5 countries in Central Asia
According to Van Bingvay, the CEO of Logistics company of “Chengdu-Central Asia”, this train departing Chengdu Railway Station, goes westwards via Lanzhou and Urumqi; in about 4 days it reaches Alashankou, from where it continues its journey to Almaty (Kazakhstan), Bishkek ( Kyrgyzstan), Tashkent ( Uzbekistan) and Dushanbe (Tajikistan), and terminates in Ashgabat (Turkmenistan). The journey takes from 9 to 11 days, which is almost two times faster than before.
It is noted that the train can carry up to 35 containers. The first freight of 25 containers, that has been already loaded, includes large items of machinery and equipment, spare parts and consumer goods, - worth of 12 million USD. This railway line is expected to create “a unified centre, a single basis”, and due to the high demand for consumer goods, electronics and appliances, to form a purchasing centre for the Central Asian countries - a cross-border trade platform. This will bring the Chengdu brands to international promotion.
Furthermore, the climate of Central Asia contributes to the high demand for fresh agricultural products of good quality. The Chengdu route is to benefit from agricultural advantages and to create an agricultural produce export centre for Central Asia.
