The train is loaded with 1,669 tonnes of cargo consisting of automobile windscreens, hydraulic hoses and building materials, among other goods.

Since 2017, Shanxi has launched 10 China-Europe freight train routes and handled 683 China-Europe and China-Central Asia trains, linking 33 cities from 13 countries along the Belt and Road.
