8月8日晚21时57分,“中欧班列”(长沙)首趟回程班列驶入长沙霞凝站,标志着湖南中欧班列(湘欧快线)开启去程、回程双向常态化运行。

  Hunan-Europe Express Line has started regular two-way operation since August 8, 2017, when a freight train loaded with 1,100 tons of goods arrived at the Changsha Xianing Station.

2014年10月30日,湖南省首条直达欧洲的国际铁路货运专列“湘欧快线”正式开行,结束了湖南和欧洲进出口货物单纯依赖海运的历史。

  The first Hunan-Europe Express Line operated from October 30, 2014 has ended carriage of goods solely by sea between Hunan and Europe.

湘欧快线双向常态化运行后,湘欧快线将依托长沙霞凝中南国际陆港中心,深入欧洲、中亚、中东、东盟地区,形成扇形国际物流网络,全面融入国家“一带一路”建设,成为湖南开放崛起的重要枢纽平台。

  The regular two-way operation has formed an international logistics network covering Europe, Central Asia, the Middle East and the ASEAN, which will assist Changsha Xianing Station in becoming an international inland port in the central south China, as well as boost Hunan’s development and participation in the “Belt and Road” initiative.

湘欧快线至今开行了从长沙至汉堡、华沙、莫斯科、塔什干,明斯克、布达佩斯共六条中欧班列线路,连通了德国、乌克兰、俄罗斯、匈牙利、拉脱维亚等10个国家,覆盖了沿线国家13个主要城市。

  There are now six Hunan-Europe Express lines access from Changsha to Hamburg, Warsaw, Moscow, Tashkent, Minsk and Budapest. They also link 10 countries including Germany, Ukraine, Russia, Hungary, Latvia, etc. and 13 major cities along the lines.

湘欧快线近三年成绩单:共发送货运量38.79万吨,总货值58.93亿元,综合发运总量在国内名列前茅。

  In recent three years, Hunan-Europe Express Line has carried 38,7900 tons of goods amounted to 5,893 million yuan, taking the lead in China-Europe Express Lines.

Hunan-Europe Express Line is featured with stable and fast operation at a moderate cost, which can save about 70% cost than air freight, and about 40 days than sea freight.
