COSCO SHIPPING launches Qinzhou-Luzhou intermodal train service

September 13, 2022 BIMCO

Cargoes were transported from the Port of Abu Dhabi to the Beibu Gulf Port, and then transferred to the Qinzhou East Railway Yard Station in mid-August by a block train running through the New Western Land-sea Trade Corridor.

Arrival in Luzhou is expected in three days.

The Qinzhou-Luzhou regular sea-rail block train is an extended service provided by the Port of Qinzhou as a part of the New Western Land-Sea Trade Corridor construction efforts.

COSCO said it can save approximately 25 days for the entire transportation period compared with the traditional intermodal transport mode.

Last month, COSCO SHIPPING announced interim results for the first half of 2022, boasting revenues of $704.6 million.

The figure stands for a 24.7 per cent year-on-year (YoY) increase.
