In the first quarter, Hefei launched two new CR Express routes. Among them, on January 31, a CR Express train with 100 TEUs of cargo set off to Prague, transporting goods worth of nearly 5.1 million U.S. dollars, with a cargo weight of more than 590 tons. On February 4, the first LCL business operated by Hefei International Land Port was launched, as three 40-foot containers full of anti-epidemic materials were completed in the self-operated warehouse. This move is conducive to providing comprehensive services for international freight and exploring the diversified development model of CR Express services.
