At about 10:00 a.m. on December 27, an international freight train fully loaded with toys, stationery, ceramic products, clothing, shoes and the accessories, and fitness equipment, etc. left Shantou North Railway Station and began a journey of more than 10,000 km to Minsk, capital of Belarus.

Shantou-Minsk international freight train travels via Urumqi West Railway Station, Alataw Pass Station, Kazakhstan, Russia to Belarus capital of Minsk, with the total distance of 10,200 km, costing one seventh of the air freight price and taking 16 to 18 days (one half of the shipping time). It provides safe, quick, convenient and high quality international railway transport services for the strategy of "Towards the Global" for Shantou products. After the successful test of the line, other 6 lines, namely, Shantou-Almaty of kazakhstan, Shantou-Tashkent of Uzbekistan, Shantou-Moscow of Russia, Shantou-Hamburg of Germany, Shantou-Iran and Shantou-Afghanistan will be put into operation in succession. In the early stage of operation, there will be 1 train per week. In the future, the operators will further cooperate and communicate with all parties along the line, actively expand the supply channels, strive to promote the normalization of the train operation, and gradually realize the operation of 2 to 3 trains per week.
