Nippon Express' Suzhou-Hamburg-Duisburg rail container service
The new route goes via the Manzhouli-Zabaykalsk and Brest-Małaszewicze border crossings, with trains running to Europe once per week.
The Japanese logistics company is also working on adding the eastbound leg to the service.
Nippon Express wants to connect Suzhou with Moscow, too.
The company plans to ramp up the number of to-Europe train runs from 3,000 to 5,000/year.
Meanwhile, Nippon Express has also put in place a service that links Suzhou and Hanoi.
