(ECNS) -- The test cargo via the China-Myanmar New Passage (Yangon-Lincang-Chengdu) sea-road-rail intermodal transport arrived at Chengdu International Railway Port for the first time on Friday.
The goods were shipped from Singapore to Yangon Port in Myanmar, and entered by road transport in Lincang, southwest China's Yunnan Province.
The batch of goods then were transported to Chengdu directly through railway.
This passage connects the logistics lines of Singapore, Myanmar and China, and is currently the most convenient land and sea channel linking the Indian Ocean with southwest China.
The transportation distance is greatly shortened, with the one-way journey saving 20 to 22 days.
This passage is a more economical and convenient alternative compared with traditional logistics routes.
It will be a new channel for west China, especially southwest China, to enter the Atlantic Ocean via the Indian Ocean and to directly carry out international trade and logistics.
