The China-Europe freight train in Wuhan, resumed operation as a train pulled out of the Wujiashan in Central China's Hubei province, March 28.
It was the first China-Europe freight train to depart from this hard-hit city since the COVID-19 prevention and control measures were implemented and is expected to leave China from the transfer station at the Alataw Pass, Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region and arrive in Duisburg in Germany 15 days later.
The train, carrying 50 containers of goods for pandemic prevention and control, construction materials for the Hungary-Serbia railway and automobile accessories, will transit France, Germany, Poland and Hungary.
CHINA RAILWAY & ITOP LOGISTICS CO., LTD (CRIL), a subsidiary of China Railway Materials Group Corporation (CRM), was responsible for the transport of 22 containers to Wuhan station, which took only seven days.

CRIL delivered more than 2,500 containers of goods via the China-Europe freight train service in 2019, which contributed to the globalization of China-made facilities and goods.
