The New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor recorded the 20,000th sea-rail intermodal train to operate on it on Aug 29, which departed from Guangxi's Qinzhou and headed towards Chongqing.

The train was loaded with 54 wagons of Vietnamese-made trunkings and Hainan coconut milk.

The New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor connects the Silk Road Economic Belt in the north and the 21st Century Maritime Silk Road in the south. It now reaches 111 stations in 59 cities of 16 provinces, autonomous regions, and municipalities after over five years' growth.

Cargo categories transported on the corridor have now expanded to over 640, covering auto parts, computer accessories, and new energy vehicles. Previously, it just had dozens of cargo categories, covering items like ceramics and plates.

In the first seven months of 2022, 92,000 twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) containers have been transported on the corridor, up 52 percent year-on-year. Among them, 42,000 TEUs were for foreign trade of RCEP member countries.
