First Container Train Departs on China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan Multimodal Corridor

On June 5, the first of 25 container trains departed from the city of Lanzhou, in China’s Gansu province, for Turkmenistan’s Mary city in the Karakum Desert.

The train will be running along the China-Kyrgyzstan-Uzbekistan transport corridor, completely bypassing Kazakhstan and Russia.

Logistics of transporting the containers from China to Osh in Kyrgyzstan, will be handled by the Uzbek-Chinese joint venture Silk Road International.

Multiple deals were signed with various operators to secure competitive tariffs along the 4,380 km-long corridor that would travel all the way across from China to the Baltic ports.
