beijing-hamburg rail freight




"HAMBURG, Germany (AFP) A goods train from Beijing arrived in Hamburg on Thursday after having crossed six countries in a journey organisers said could ring in a new era of rail transport between Asia and Europe.

The "Beijing-Hamburg Container Express" left the Chinese capital on January 9 with its cargo of shoes, toys and electronic goods and covered the distance of 10,000 kilometres (6,200 miles) in 15 days, Germany's state-owned rail operator Deutsche Bahn said.

The company's logistics chief, Norbert Bensel, said the inaugural journey on the new rail route had delivered its cargo in roughly half the time it would have taken to arrive in the northern German port city by sea."
