The number of China-Europe freight trains hit a record high of 1,247 in August, marking the sixth consecutive month that the number registered double-digit growth. The freight trains have played a crucial role in helping stabilize the international logistics supply chain, transporting 113,000 twenty-foot equivalent units of cargo last month, up 66 percent from a year earlier, according to the company. Increasing demand for the freight trains came amid China's economic recovery and limited international air and sea transport during the COVID-19 pandemic.
