The number of China-Europe freight trains handled by Horgos port in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has reached 3,000 so far this year, the customs authority said.

A train that departed from the city of Chengdu, southwest China's Sichuan Province, for Lodz in Poland on Thursday, became the 3,000th China-Europe freight train to pass through the port since Jan. 1.

The port dealt with 495 China-Europe freight trains in July, up 55.17 percent year on year. It handled 482 China-Europe freight trains in August, up 62.29 percent year on year.

The port has set up an exclusive window for the freight train services, increasing the efficiency of customs clearance by more than 60 percent.
