Dou­ble-deck con­tainer train en­ters ser­vice

China Daily European Weekly - - News Digest -

A dou­ble-deck freight train car­ry­ing 56 stan­dard con­tain­ers of goods left Ningbo-Zhoushan Port for Shaox­ing, Zhe­jiang prov­ince, on Dec 18. It was the first such train to en­ter ser­vice in China. The abil­ity to carry a big­ger load — 30 per­cent more than a con­ven­tional con­tainer train — saves trans­port costs by com­par­i­son with tra­di­tional sin­gle-deck con­tainer trains, ac­cord­ing to sources at the port. Last year, the port han­dled more than 1 bil­lion tons of cargo, the most in the world.
