Railway Freight To CIS

Central Asia is Central Asia. Geographically, it refers to a vast area extending from the Caspian Sea in the west, Xinjiang of China in the east, Afghanistan in the south, and Russia in the north. According to the official definition of the Soviet Union, which has long occupied most of the territory of this area, after the disintegration of the Soviet Union, Central Asia became the five independent republics of the former Soviet Union in central Asia-Kazakhstan (population 18,776,707), Kyrgyzstan (population 6,524,195), The general term for Tajikistan (population 9,537,645), Turkmenistan (population 6,031,200), and Uzbekistan (population 33,469,203).

Railway transportation from China to Kyrgyzstan

Kyrgyzstan is located in the northwestern part of Xinjiang, China, in the central area of  Eurasia. It is not only a link connecting Eurasia and the Middle East, but also the only place through which all neighboring countries' forces go east and west, and go south and north in history. With a total land area of 199,000 square kilometers, it is one of the five Central Asian countries and a landlocked country located in the northeastern part of Central Asia. The southeast and east meet with China. It borders Kazakhstan to the north, Uzbekistan to the west, and Tajikistan to the south. The total population is about 6 million. The main cities are Chuhe, Taras, Osh, Jalalabad, Naryn, Issyk-Kul, Batken, Bishkek, and Osh. . Kyrgyzstan has more than 500 kilometers of railway lines. The railway network line is not connected to the north and south. It is divided into two parts. The rail width standard is purchased according to the Russian standard, and the railway line proposal is also left by the Soviet Union. The railway transportation in Kyrgyzstan is underdeveloped. From Barekchi on the west bank of Lake Issyk-Kul in the east, it is connected to the Kazakhstan railway network through the Ji-Kazakh border to the west, and it can reach Russia directly; the southern railway is 101.2 kilometers long and connects with Xinjiang, China. Most trains of the China-Europe Express on the Belt and Road pass through Kyrgyzstan, so Kyrgyzstan is the country with the most trains on the "New Silk Road", and the Central Asia International Railway plays an important role in the multimodal transport!

China is Kyrgyzstan’s second largest trading country after Russia. A large number of cargo transportation relies on railway transportation, the lowest cost and most stable international multimodal transportation method. In addition to railway transportation, there is also international automobile transportation / international air transportation to Kyrgyzstan. .

The railway transportation routes from China to Kyrgyzstan are: Guangzhou-Chengdu-Alashankou-Alamejin. Guangzhou is a transit warehouse for consolidation. Goods from Guangdong Province such as Shenzhen/Dongguan/Foshan/Huizhou/Shantou need to be transported to this warehouse and then collectively transported to Chengdu Railway Station. As an important starting point for the China-Europe train, Chengdu, Sichuan provides not only rail transportation to Europe, but also container international rail transportation to the five countries of Central Asia and Russia.

The railway transportation route from China to Kyrgyzstan is more than 7,000 kilometers long, and the transportation time is about 20 to 21 days.

Railway transportation from China to Kazakhstan

Kazakhstan is surrounded by five Central Asian countries and Russia/Caspian Sea. The outside traffic can only be transported by international railways and automobiles. The single freight volume of highway automobile transportation is small, the freight cost is high, and the transportation is unstable. Kazakhstan has developed railway lines, and railway transportation occupies a considerable position in Kazakhstan. The railway lines connect China in Asia, Moscow in Russia, to the east to many European countries, and neighboring Turkmenistan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, and Tajikistan. The east is lost to Afghanistan and Iran. In terms of land area, Kazakhstan is the five largest in Central Asia and China, and its economic share is also far ahead of several countries.

The movement of a large number of goods requires strong logistics to support. Before the opening of one of the "Central Asia trains", China-Kazakhstan container railway transportation, the goods shipped from China to Kazakhstan are all multimodal transportation such as international automobile transportation. From the far south, use Chinese logistics to transport to Alashankou, Xinjiang for customs declaration and export.

Automobile transportation is affected by many unstable factors such as road surface/weather/driver/vehicle conditions, and cannot be transported in large quantities in single batches. The opening of the international train container line between China and Kazakhstan has greatly resolved the logistics contradiction between the two countries and promoted the rapid development of the two economies.

There are only two railway stations on the route from China to Kazakhstan that can provide international container railway transportation services until the end, one is Xi'an in Shaanxi and the other is Qingdao in Shandong Province. The container transportation from these two railway stations to Kazakhstan is divided into several different routes and departure trains. There are a total of more than 17 railway routes running to Almaty, Astana, and Almaty. The five cities of Trau, Karaganda and Zimkent.

The detailed main routes of the container railway transportation route from China to Kazakhstan can be summarized as follows:

· The first route is: (Chengdu, Chongqing, Yiwu, Shenzhen, Guangzhou, Dongguan, Huizhou, Shanghai, Beijing, Xi'an, Wuhan, Changsha, Xiamen) - Alashankou - Atenkoli - Almaty

· The second route is: (Shantou, Heyuan, Suzhou, Tianjin, Guangxi)-Alashankou-Dostyk-Astana

·The third route is: Zhongshan, Foshan, Jiangmen - Horgos - Atenkori - Zimkent

· The fourth route: (Qingdao, Tianjin, Shenyang, Yantai, Laiyang, Weifang, Zibo, Jinan, Dezhou, Linyi)-Almaty, Astana

There are a total of 17 routes for container railway transportation from China to Kazakhstan. Some routes are sold overlappingly. Basically, one or two trains are issued per week for each route. The running time is calculated from the start of the train, including the time for intermediate track changes. The total railway time to reach the destination port is 15-20 days. Compared with the Belt and Road Central Europe Express, the Central Asia-Kazakhstan railway has a slower running time. The same time travel from China to Kazakhstan is more than 3,000 kilometers. The main reason for this is the cost of changing the rail at noon.

Railway transportation from China to Uzbekistan

The railway freight transportation from China to Uzbekistan connects the important tasks of the economic interoperability and development of the two countries. The development of international railway freight logistics between the two countries originated in September 2013. President Xi Jinping put forward the "Silk Road Economic Belt" initiative, which provides opportunities for economic cooperation between China and Uzbekistan. Economic development is inseparable from the investment in logistics infrastructure. Only when the roads of goods circulation are smooth, the logistics cost is low, and the transportation time is short can it serve as a strong support for economic development. The formation of the international multimodal railway route connecting the cities of Uzbekistan from various cities in China is the result of the efforts of the governments of the two countries.

The railway line from China to Uzbekistan departs from the “China-Europe Express” Xi’an Station. The goods can be received at the same time in all parts of China. Dongguan, Zhongshan, Qingyuan, Dalian, Beijing, and Zhengzhou are transported to the departure railway station through our international transshipment warehouses all over these places, and then transported from the departure railway station Xi’an to the beautiful Uzbekistan

China to Uzbekistan Railway Operation Route: China (Xi'an) - Khorgos - Atenkori - Uzbekistan (Tashkent, Sergey Lichukulsee)

The railway running route from China to Uzbekistan has a total length of over 8,000 kilometers, and the entire transportation time is more than 15 days, including transit through the country, changing rail tracks, and changing railway companies.
