Double-deck container train enters service
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.
