Railway transport From China to Russia


Railway transport From China to Russia


Better infrastructure connectivity including the Belt and Road Initiative, especially the China-Europe rail freight network, has played a big role in China becoming the top foreign direct investment destination as well as the top source of outward foreign direct investment in the world.


This is how most of the cargo used to be transported from China to other countries, and the other way round, until 10 years ago when some Chinese people asked whether there was a better, faster and perhaps cheaper way to export goods to, as well as import goods from, other countries. Ship transport is usually cheaper than other modes of freight transport, but ships are vulnerable to pirate attacks in the Gulf waters and the Strait of Malacca and susceptible to accidents like the recent one in the Suez Canal. Airfreight is fast but very costly.

So a new transport route was proposed: a modern version of the ancient Silk Road that would connect China with Central Asia, the Middle East and Europe. The Silk Road was first used 2,000 years during the Han Dynasty (206 BC-AD 220) and reached its peak during the Tang Dynasty (618-907), when not only the Chinese but also other countries' merchants used it for trading tea, silk, porcelain and other goods.

Rail freight routes between China and Europe

There are two main routes for freight trains, with a number of sub-routes:
  • The southern route through Kazakhstan and southern Russia is most suited for freight to and from central China, e.g. the regions surrounding Chengdu, Chongqing and Zhengzhou.

  • The northern route through Siberia is ideal for container transport for the northern regions around Beijing, Dalian, Suzhou and Shenyang. In Europe, the most important terminals are Duisburg and Hamburg in Germany, and Warsaw in Poland. 

  • The bulk of rail shipments from Asia to Europe are for industries such as automotive, consumer, retail and fashion, industrial manufacturing and technology. Most of the products are destined for Germany, the largest market, but deliveries also go to the surrounding countries: Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Denmark, Switzerland and sometimes stretch to the UK, Spain and Norway. 


Currently there are more than 15 main China cities (such as Zhengzhou, Chongqing, Chengdu, Wuhan, Hefei, Changsha, Yiwu, Xiamen, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Xian, Shenyang, Harbin……etc) have rail freight connection with arrival more than 16 main cities in Europe. Cities(photo as below)

Trains in China and Russia run an average of 800-1100 kilometers a day, compared with 250-400 kilometers in Europe. The number of containers per train varies from 41 in China. Train will be reloading 2 times in China Border and Belarus border during whole journal because of different gauge, but it’s low risk than others, because railway require high standard in terms of container loading mechanism, cargo weight, loading sequence…which is more strict than other transportation.
