The first train along the Sino-Europe Cross-Border E-Commerce Train departed lately from Zhengzhou to Belgium. The train would depart twice each week, which kicks off the partnership of Zhengzhou’s “inland silk road” with Alibaba’s Cainiao cross-border ecommerce.
The train took goods for European consumers who ordered via Cainiao’s service. It would take about half a month before the European consumers receive the delivery.
The new train line would save about 30% of logistics cost for companies, and solve problems of cosmetics and large packages to be sent overseas. (Source:baijiahao)
