A freight train departed from Beijing to the Russian capital Moscow on Monday, marking the launch of a regular China-Europe freight train service from the Chinese capital.

The vehicle, carrying construction materials, household appliances, clothing and other goods, departed from the logistics hub in Pinggu district in the northeast of the city.

Beijing launched the first experimental train last March. Since then, further preparations and improvements have been made. Starting Monday, the service will run at least once a month.

“Products used to be shipped to neighboring Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region or Hebei Province before heading to Europe,” said Geng Zhanfeng, deputy general manager of Sinotrans’s northern China branch. “The launch of this service allows us to ship goods directly from Beijing to Europe, reducing costs and increasing efficiency,” he said.
