First China-to-Russia container line route
Chinese shipping firms opened their first China-to-Russia container route, shipping from Ningbo port to Vostochny port more than 100 TEUs weekly filled with retail goods, computer components and ironware products.
Container carriers use the route weekly, departing Ningbo port every Thursday. After arriving at the Vostochny port, cargoes will be unloaded and sent by rail to East Europe.
Bilateral trade between China and Russia has grown in recent months. During the first three quarters of the year, trade volume between the two countries surged by 14.2 percent from a year earlier to $66.2 billion, according to the Chinese General Administration of Customs.
