The department says rail has maintained safe operation during the pandemic, and should play a key part in stabilising international trade and improving the situation after the virus is contained.
Various measures to make rail freight more efficient have been proposed by the department, including:
The department has also proposed strengthening emergency safety guarantees. This would involve creating a comprehensive emergency management system for China – Europe freight trains, as well as improving early warning mechanisms and strengthening and enhancing the level of resource integration in emergency situations.
The department is looking to optimise the organisation, quality and efficiency of trans-Eurasian rail operation. It foresees the formulation of China – Europe timetables, dynamically adjusting routes, and promoting the intensive use of route resources.
China also wants to strengthen cooperation with railways in countries along the route, which it says will help to reduce the total running time of the trains.
