URUMQI - Urumqi International Land Port Area in Northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region saw an increase in the number of cargo trains between the land port area and Europe and Central Asia, local authorities said.
In June, a total of 106 outbound and inbound freight trains were launched between the port area and Europe and Central Asia, up 8.2 percent month-on-month, said the regional government.
Affected by the COVID-19 outbreak, the land port area has taken a slew of measures to stabilize the number of freight trains for international transport.
As of June, Urumqi International Land Port Area had launched freight trains on 21 routes linking 26 cities in 19 European and Asian countries.
