CHINA-EUROPE RAILWAY LINKED TO CHENGDU TIMBER DISTRIBUTION CENTER.

The China-Europe Express (CR Express) train connects 48 Chinese cities with over 40 cities in 14 European countries and is becoming a fast-track cargo option for Chinese importers. A China-Europe Railway Express (Chengdu) International Timber Distribution Center has recently been established in Chengdu municipality, Sichuan Province.

The trading center is one of the five major markets which provide data for the compilation of the China Timber Price Index. This new China-Europe railway express service has opened up further opportunities for the development of China/EU trade, especially with the Belt and Road countries. It is forecast that timber trade between China and European countries will be further promoted by the development of the new railway. For more information:
