China-EU-China rail container traffic via Belarus registered a threefold increased in 2014 compared to previous year, amounting to 40,600 TEU.
According to Belarusian Railways, container trains transiting Belarus carry cargo from China to European countries, including Germany, Poland, and the Czech Republic. In 2014, the Belarusian Railways transported 193,100 TEU.
Given the global trend of containerization of freight transport, Belarusian Railways takes an active part in new projects in this area. Last year the company launched in partnership with UTLC Project Office and DHL Global Forwarding a new container train from China to Europe. In May 2014, a container train successfully delivered Chinese products from Wuchang (China) to Pardubice (Czech Republic), while in June a container train was launched to deliver Hyundai vehicle sets from the Czech Republic to Kazakhstan (Kostanay).
