Benefiting from the expansion of the main coal transportation route and the improved efficiency of train use, the railway freight volume in northwest China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region has increased significantly.

In the first eight months of this year, railway freight in Xinjiang reached 135 million tonnes, up 11.8 percent year on year, China Railway's Urumqi bureau said on Thursday.

So far this year, the Xinjiang railway has handled 78.1 million tonnes of coal, up 31.1 percent year on year, of which 32.3 million tonnes were transported out of Xinjiang, up 43.2 percent year on year.

In the first eight months, the number of China-Europe freight trains passing through Xinjiang's Alashankou and Horgos ports reached 8,701.
