Container train put into service in China port

A double-stack freight train carrying 56 standard containers of goods left Ningbo-Zhoushan Port for Shaoxing City in east China’s Zhejiang Province Tuesday (Dec. 18), marking the official operation of the first such train service in China.


The double-stack train can save transport costs and increase carrying capacity by more than 30 percent compared with the traditional single container train, according to sources with the port.

In each car, one 40-foot intermodal container can be stacked on top of two 20-foot containers in a row, according to China Railway Shanghai Group Co., Ltd.
