Ankang, Shaanxi Province, is located in the hinterland of Qinba Mountain.
Traffic problems were once a major problem that plagued local development.
Especially since the implementation of poverty alleviation, the logistics of foreign trade products such as agricultural products with local characteristics and plush toys and clothing produced by community factories has become a difficult problem for the local government to get rid of poverty steadily and further develop wealth.
On the afternoon of December 8, the first China-EU train “Anxio” was full of 43 containers with more than 700 tons of plush toys, plates and other goods worth 36 million yuan from Ankang East Station.
It is understood that the first China-Europe train started from Ankang, Shaanxi Province, and went westward through Xi’an Port to Horgos Port.
After a 15-day 9300-kilometer “cross-border journey”, it finally arrived in Germany and other places through Uzbekistan, Kazakhstan.
The successful opening of the China-EU train “Anxio” ended the history of not running a China-EU train in southern Shaanxi, connecting the three major economic circles of Guantian, Chengdu and Chongqing and Jianghan, and also driving the Qinba Mountains to integrate more closely into the “Belt and Road” pattern.
