This freight train is the first of its kind running between Moscow Hovlino Railway Station and Harbin Xinxiangfang Railway Station and obtained official approval from the Russian State Railway Company.
Compared with other cross-border freight trains in operation, the newly-opened Moscow-Harbin freight train operates under a fixed train number and fixed timetables, routes, stops and transportation prices. It enters China through Heilongjiang’s Suifenhe port, which shares a border with Russia in the north.

In the next three months, normalized freight train operations between Harbin and Moscow will be realized at least once a week.
Harbin Russian Express Operation Co will operate the trains. The company has nine branches in Russia and more than 100 Russian employees. It is currently the only Chinese-funded transportation company with railway carrier qualifications in Russia.
The fixed freight train operation makes Harbin become the first provincial capital in China to have stable return freight train services with Moscow-centered Russia and the European hinterland.
Harbin has taken measures to further upgrade its public housing rental security mechanism.
The Harbin City Social Credit System Construction Promotion Regulations were formally implemented on Feb 1.
Harbin recently issued the "Implementation Rules for Several Opinions on Supporting the Development of Private Economy and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises".
Harbin Economic and Development Zone recently issued measures for the innovative development of the industrial chain.
