Updated 2018-03-27 13:19:05 Xinhua

A new freight train service between Caofeidian Port in north China's Hebei Province and Ulan Bator, capital of Mongolia, was launched Monday.

Departing from Caofeidian Port, a train loaded electrical appliances, furniture and raw materials will travel via Erenhot Port in north China's Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region and finally arrive in Ulan Bator.

"This was the first international freight train service launched in Tangshan City," said Wang Kesheng, president of Caofeidian Port Group Incorporation.

He said steel products and construction materials produced in Tangshan would be exported to Mongolia and European countries through the new route.

Caofeidian Port will also be built to access the China-Mongolia-Russia Economic Corridor, according to a strategic cooperation agreement signed by Caofeidian Port Group Incorporation and the government of Ulanqab City of Inner Mongolia.

Caofeidian is an economic development zone in Bohai Bay, about 200 kilometers east of Beijing.
