Witnessed by the visiting Austrian President Alexander van der Bellen and Chancellor Sebastian Kurz, a freight train with a full load of goods departed from Chengdu on April 12, set to run all the way to Vienna.
On board this particular Chengdu-Vienna train were displays, tires, daily commodities, machines and many other goods. Covering 9,800 kilometers, the train will take about 13 days to arrive in Vienna.
During the launch ceremony of the train service, the cargo unit of Austria's national railway company signed an agreement with the China International Railway Port to explore further cooperation.
Austrian Foreign Minister Karin Kneissl said the direct freight train service is of great significance for the business ties between the two countries.
"Compared with ocean shipping, the travel time of the Chengdu-Vienna train can be greatly shortened," she said, adding that this route is "tailored to the inland country of Austria".
Chengdu's railway port executives said the route is expected to become regular with trade increasing between China and Austria.
