On April 8, the first batch of 216 automobiles produced by SAIC-GM Wuhan Plant were loaded and transported in succession at Wuhan Dahualing Logistics Base. They will leave China at Xinjiang Horgos Port and arrive in Uzbekistan in 18 days. This train carrying these automobiles and originating from Wuhan is the railway sector’s first Wuhan-Central Asia international intermodal automobile transporting train.
Automobile and its parts manufacturing are one of the pillar industries in Hubei Province. China Railway Wuhan Group Co., Ltd. has worked closely with China Railway Special Cargo Logistics Co., Ltd. Wuhan Branch and other enterprises to formulate transportation plans in accordance with the "one plan for one enterprise". Giving full play to the railway's advantages in large transport capacity and environmental protection, it has vigorously operated automobile trains to help the local automobile industry resume production and sell automobiles produced in Hubei at home and abroad.
SAIC-GM Wuhan Plant, who has recently obtained the permission to resume production, has produced a batch of automobiles for selling to Central Asian countries along the route of the Belt and Road. China Railway Wuhan Group Co., Ltd. has taken the initiative to provide transportation services and actively operated the Central Asian international intermodal automobile transporting train. It has allocated the transportation resources at all stations under its administration, and quickly assembled the special vehicles for automobile transportation to Dahualing South Station, providing sufficient transport capacity for the export trade of complete automobiles. Wuchang Station, which is responsible for the loading and departure of the train, has made communications in advance on matters such as automobile receiving and loading, accelerated the loading process, and set up a quick loading team with China Railway Special Cargo Logistics Co., Ltd. Wuhan Branch. While doing a good job of epidemic prevention and disinfection at the loading site, it has given priority to these automobiles in consignment, empty car distribution, loading and coupling for transportation, so as to improve the transport efficiency.
There will be additional more than 200 automobiles to be exported via the second Central Asian international intermodal automobile transporting train. China Railway Wuhan Group Co., Ltd. will continue to strengthen cooperation with local manufacturers and provide more convenience in loading, consignment and other links to help economic and social development.
