The train from Yiwu, around 250 kms from Shanghai, arrived in Köln-Niehl yesterday, 20th November, DVZ reported.

If this becomes a regular service, the trimodal container terminal operated by CTS Container Terminal GmbH (Häfen und Güterverkehr Köln group), could become a turntable for Chinese business. The train arrived with 36 40ft containers, of which only eight were for the local market at the other 28 are destined for onward rail transportation by Transfesa to Spain. China’s President Xi Jinping is scheduled to welcome the train in Madrid during his official state visit to Spain.

 

The project was organized by St Gallen, Switzerland-based InterRail Holding AG, with Compass Customs arranging the customs clearance. InterRail already operates seven block train services between China and Europe.
