China Sends First Freight Train to London

  • According to reports, earlier this week, China sent its first freight train to London from Yiwu West Railway Station in Zhejiang province. The train will cover 8,000 miles and take two and a half weeks to reach the British capital.

    Before reaching London, the train will pass through Kazakhstan, Russia, Belarus, Poland, Germany, Belgium and France.

    This initiative has been taken with a hope to improve the economic ties of China with Europe, Asia and the Middle East.
