Since the first cargo train set off from Daqing city, Heilongjiang province, for Belgium last June, the new China-Europe train service tailor-made for Volvo's Daqing factory has transported 10,936 China-made Volvo cars.

A one-way trip takes 18 days via the 10,887 kilometers-long route, passing through Russia, Belarus, Poland and Germany, saving 28 days compared to the traditional marine transport.

The train to Zeebrugge Port in Belgium also marked the first time that China has exported complete vehicles to Western Europe.

The return train will also transport goods, opening up a faster, safer and more convenient way between Europe and China.
