China-Laos Railway ships over 1m tons

China-Laos Railway ships over 1m tons

The Laos-China Railway Co., Ltd., a joint venture based in Lao capital Vientiane responsible for the operation of the railway's Lao section, has said since its opening last December, cross-border goods transported by the China-Laos Railway have exceeded 1 million tons.

Since the opening of the railway, freight transport has shown a rising trend, with goods such as daily commodities, fertilizers, photovoltaics, textiles and vegetables, among others, shipped from China to Laos, while iron and zinc ore, charcoal, rubber, potash and fruits were transported from Laos and neighboring countries to China.

The cost of freight through the railway is almost the same as that of maritime transport, while the transport time is cut significantly shorter.
