South China's Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region saw a surge in China-Europe freight train trips in the first seven months of this year, according to Nanning Customs.

From January to July, there were 400 inbound and outbound China-Europe freight trains via the region's Pingxiang port, which borders Vietnam, up 80.2 percent year on year.

A total of 12,286 TEUs of goods were transported by China-Europe freight train service, tripling the figure from the same period last year.

The province has so far launched 10 China-Europe freight train routes, with increasing varieties of goods being imported and exported, said Li Donghui with an international railway logistics company based in Nanning.
