First Laos – China international freight train leaves Chengdu

The first Laos-China international freight train loaded with spare parts, control panels, textiles and electronics officially left Chengdu, China heading to Vientiane, Laos.

The train with 35 cars was loaded with nearly 350 tons of goods, all manufactured in the Liu Chuang Special Economic Zone, according to China Radio International – CRI.

The train is expected to reach Vientiane within 72 hours from Dec 4 and save up to 20% -30% of the cost for Chinese enterprises.

The launch of the newly built Laos-China railway has not only provided more convenient channels for Sichuan’s commercial enterprises and electronics manufacturers to transport goods to ASEAN, but also reduced the time and cost of transporting goods from Sichuan to ASEAN.

It also constitutes a strategic point for Sichuan to accelerate the development of high-quality modern goods and deepen economic and trade exchanges with ASEAN countries.
