China Railway Corp. Launches Express Cargo Service

The China Railway Corp., a spinoff of China’s former Ministry of Railways, has launched a new express cargo service to allow it to better compete in the logistics market, Global Times reports.

The company will start delivery of freight door-to-door via its express service on June 15, allowing clients to place orders either online or by call, instead of going through the previously longer procedures such as submitting request plans and contacting different departments for loading and transport.

The services offered include bulk transport of goods, including coal, oil and iron ore, as well as high-speed train delivery of small express packages.
