First container train with Belarus' dairy products leaves for China

The first container train loaded with dairy products on Tuesday left Belarus for China, local media reported.

The train consists of 41 40-foot containers, 20 of which are filled with Belarusian milk powder. The other containers are filled with Belarusian exports. The train will travel from the Belarusian railway station of Kolyadichi to the Tuanjiecun station in Chongqing, China.

Aleksei Bogdanov, head of the Central Office for Foreign Economic Activities of the Belarusian Agriculture and Food Ministry, told reporters that it is not the first shipment of Belarusian dairy products to China but it is the first shipment being delivered by a container train.

The shipment was organized by the Belintertrans Transport-Logistics Center enterprise (BTLC) of the Belarusian Railways and ZAO Meat & Dairy Company.

The train will take 10 days to reach its destination. Getting the freight from Belarus to China by sea would take 40 days, experts said.
