China starts 2nd int’l freight service
China has started the second international freight route through a new rail freight service from north China's Baoding city to central and southern Asia on Friday.

The train loaded with 1,000 tonnes of goods such as textiles, electronics and machinery parts, will reach Kashgar in the south of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region where the goods will be distributed to six countries by road.

The train is run by Taitong International Transport Co., Ltd from Hebei Province. The trip takes 15 to 18 days.

In April 2016, first international freight train from Baoding ran to Belarus.

Encouraging by the Belt and Road Initiative, more than 20 Chinese cities now run trains to central Asia and Europe, according to Xinhua.
