Cargo carried on the Silk Road between China and Germany will increase 2.5 times: Germany's railway company Deutsche Bahn announced that the cargo transported using the Silk Road, the longest railway in the world between China and Germany, will increase by 2020 times and reach 2.5 thousand containers by 100.
In the statement, while it was said that 2016 thousand containers were transported between the two countries in 40, it was announced that this figure was 35 thousand last year. Deutsche Bahn board member Ronald Pofalla said that this number could increase to 2020 thousand by 100.
It is known that the Trans-Eurasian railway is between 10 thousand and 12 thousand kilometers long and passes through Poland, Belarus, Russia, Kazakhstan and Mongolia.
Transportation on this line, also known as the "Silk Road", takes 12-16 days. This way is preferred because it is faster than sea transportation and less expensive than airline.
