Xi'an, capital city of Northwest China's Shaanxi province, saw a surge in China-Europe freight train trips this year, the city government told a press conference Oct 19.
This year, the Chang'an China-Europe freight train service had operated 3,004 trains as of Sunday, 1.8 times that of the same period last year.
During the period, the train service transported more than 2.3 million metric tons of cargo, 1.5 times that of the same period last year.
