The train was loaded with 41 carriages of asbestos which were transported from Kazakhstan to Xi'an via the China-Europe freight train service.

In the past, it would take about 20 days to transport goods from Xi'an to Vietnam via the traditional rail-sea combined transportation. Thanks to the China-Vietnam freight train route via Guangxi's Pingxiang port, the journey is shortened to eight days covering 2,384 km.

The total trade volume between China and ASEAN in the first seven months of this year amounted to 3.53 trillion yuan (about 514.3 billion U.S. dollars).

With reduced transport time, the new freight train service will enable Chinese enterprises to expand their presence in the ASEAN market.
