The ambassador highlighted that the service came "at the critical moment when the world joins efforts to combat the COVID-19 pandemic." Departing from Chongqing on April 3, the "China Post" CR Express 1st block train carries 44 TEUs of relief supplies and parcels, which will be transferred later to other European countries.
Following the first postal train, seven more bound for Lithuania are scheduled to depart in the near future. As of the end of March, the China-Europe cargo trains operated from Chongqing have provided postal service to 36 European countries since 2014.
