On June 8, under the scorching hot sun, with trucks carrying open-top containers shuttling back and forth on the Taojiatun Hongfeng special railway in Changchun freight center, the workers were handling the open-top containers onto the train in a tense and orderly manner, creating a working atmosphere at the scene even hotter than the weather.
Since the beginning of this year, by giving full play to the advantages of container transportation, China Railway Shenyang Group Co., Ltd. has vigorously promoted the "bulk to container" transport of iron ore powder, cement clinker and other materials, thus promoting the steady growth of container loading. In May, China Railway Shenyang Group Co., Ltd. registered a container delivery of 3.47 million tons, up 88.6% year on year.
Making full use of the 14,000 35-ton open-top containers allocated, China Railway Shenyang Group Co., Ltd. now offers open-top container transport services at the 263 freight yards under its administration, and actively promotes 17 "bulk to container" projects involving iron ore powder, cement clinker, grain, etc. It also vigorously develops the "door-to-door" transport and intermodal transport projects, trying to connect the "last kilometer" between the railway and other modes of transport.
