The train route passed through the tunnel under the English Channel, France and Belgium, Germany, Poland, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan and further to China. The operator of the train on the territory of the CIS is JSC "KTZ Express".

The executive director of KTZ Express Karl Geissen says that the possibilities of Kazakhstan's transport and logistics infrastructure allow the shippers to build a multimodal chain that cuts the delivery time by half. Transportation of the same cargo by sea takes approximately 36-38 days.

"Freight trains between China and Europe strengthen trade and economic relations, create platforms and opportunities for the development of land transport between China and Western Europe through the territory of Kazakhstan, which contributes to the implementation of "Nurly Zhol" program and the initiative "One Belt - One Way" he noted.

Recall, the first train from China with consumer goods arrived in London in mid-January this year. Now the train, consisting of 32 containers loaded with British-made goods, has crossed the route of about 12 thousand kilometers to its destination in less than 20 days.
