Urumqi logistics center accomplishes 200 trips of freight trains heading westwards

CHINA-XINJIANG-TRAINS-TRADE (CN)

Freight train X9081 heading for Kazakhstan's Almaty is ready to leave a major logistics center in Urumqi, capital of northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, March 15, 2017. The logistics center in Urumqi had accomplished 200 trips of freight trains heading westwards. Carrying auto parts, clothing, and household goods, the train crossed the China-Kazakhstan border at Xinjiang Autonomous Region's Horgos instead of Alataw Pass on the old route. Travel time between Urumqi and Almaty is shortened by almost 25 percent to 30 hours. (Xinhua/Zhao Ge)
