Hanoi (VNA) Kep train station in the northern province of Bac Giang will offer international freight transportation services from February 20, as it meets all necessary conditions, according to the Vietnam Railways Corporation (VNR).

Specifically, the station will organise a fleet of trains running from Kep to Dong Dang station in the border province of Lang Son and then to China’s Pingxiang station.

The Kep station’s load and unload capacity is from 80 to 100 carriages or containers per day. Freight includes electronics and industrial products, construction materials, industrial wood and raw ore.

A bonded warehouse is expected to be built at the station to serve the import and export activities of enterprises in Bac Giang and Bac Ninh provinces and neighbouring localities. It specialises in receiving refrigerated containers transported from the South which will then be exported to China.

Currently, VNR is managing international freight terminals, namely Lao Cai, Yen Vien, Hai Phong, Dong Dang, Giap Bat and Song Than./.
