CRE Train Service launched to Boost Trade Relations between Jinjiang and Europe

CRE Train

The first CRE train service between Quanzhou and Moscow was launched to boost economic and trade relations between the major economic development zone of Jinjiang and Europe. On January 18, 2022, a CRE train (No. 75010) departed from Quanzhou East Station, loaded with products such as sanitation supplies, bags, shoes and clothing, handicrafts, etc., for Moscow. According to the Quanzhou Municipal Bureau Of Commerce, this is the first CRE train to Europe from Quanzhou, the starting point of the Maritime Silk Road. The inauguration of the train route will open new avenues for foreign trade in Jinjiang, a county-level city of Quanzhou.

The train carried 50 containers weighing about 445 tons, with a total value of about RMB 10.37 million. About half of the products are manufactured by Fujian Province Jinjiang City Foreign Trade Co., Ltd., Fujian Zonsun Import and Export Trade Co., Ltd., and Insoftb (China) Co., Ltd. The non-stop train departing from Quanzhou East Station will cross the border at Manzhouli Frontier Station and arrive at Moscow after a 20-day journey, with a total journey of about 10,960 km. This rail freight service shortens the transportation time by 25 days compared to maritime shipping time.

At the forefront in terms of foreign trade exports, Jinjiang realized a foreign trade value of RMB 67,359 million from Jan. to Sept. 2021, showing a year-on-year growth of 87.97% and 54.2% compared with 2020 and 2019, respectively. The value of exports to the EU was RMB 6,889 million, with a growth of 57.6%, and the number of orders is still rising. The operation of the CRE train (Quanzhou – Moscow) will boost the economic and trade relations between Jinjiang and other countries along the “Belt and Road Initiative” route and promote Jinjiang products.
