OeBB teams up with Chinese transporters
During a recent state visit, the Rail Cargo Group (RCG), the freight transport arm of Austria’s federal railway OeBB, and top players in China’s transport industry signed several cooperation agreements.
The pacts foresee the development of the transport network between China and Europe, as well as the expansion of alternative routes such as that between the Sino-Russian border and Central Europe as part of an end-to-end China – Europe supply chain via the trans-Siberian route.
Yesterday (12 April), the first train departed from Chengdu (China) en route for Vienna. (ben)
