A freight train left Harbin International Container Terminal in China's northernmost Heilongjiang province bound for Moscow on Oct 18, packed with 55 containers housing 165 domestically-manufactured automobiles.
The shipment, the third of its kind operated by Heilongjiang Longyulian International Logistics Co this year, was worth 22.13 million yuan ($3.03 million).
This service offers a cost-efficient, convenient, and highly effective international logistics channel, carving a path for automobile businesses to export complete cars to the world.
This follows the first shipment of the month on Oct 15, which saw a variety of goods, including cold-chain products, second-hand cars, tower cranes, and finished paper, making the voyage overseas.
More than 58 percent of these goods were sourced from within Heilongjiang province, significantly bolstering its foreign trade economy.
The 2023 Harbin Marathon was held with great enthusiasm on Aug 27.
Harbin recently released a set of 60 measures to optimize its business environment.
Heilongjiang issued a reform implementation plan for the general application and acquisition of business licenses for foreign-funded enterprises.
Harbin has formulated a plan to build itself into a child-friendly city.
