Vietnam rail operators eyes launch of freight trains to Europe

Vietnam Railways Corporation plans to operate freight trains to China and onward to third countries such as Russia and others in Europe this year.

In its 2020 plans, the company seeks to step up utilization of international freight transport with plans to ship fruits and aquaculture products directly from southern provinces to China using refrigerated containers.

It promised to find ways to eliminate bottlenecks to increase the volume of goods transported along the Ha Noi-Dong Dang-Pingxiang-Nanning route to other Chinese destinations as well as to third countries with the goal of eventually exporting goods to Russia and Europe.
