Beijing (VNA) – A cargo train heading for Vietnam left Kunming, the capital of the Chinese southwestern province of Yunnan, on June 13, an opening of a new route between the two countries.

The train travels 854 km in four to six days to the northern port city of Hai Phong, carrying 32 containers of mainly ore and raw materials to serve the chemical industry, according to China’s Jinlai Shunfa international logistics company.

The service is currently weekly, and is expected to become daily when the supply of goods becomes more regular.-VNA
