The X8322 international intermodal train, loaded with tobacco and related supplies from China Tobacco Shaanxi Industrial Co, departed from Xi'an Guogang Railway Station for the Mongolian capital of Ulaanbaatar on June 18.

This marked the official launch of the country's first international intermodal logistics bundling train.

This initiative, undertaken by China Railway Xi'an Group Co, aims to reduce overall logistics costs across the country, assist Chinese tobacco in expanding internationally, and support the growth of foreign trade economies.

The train will leave the country via Ereenhot Port in North China's Inner Mongolia autonomous region, and will travel 2,200 kilometers before reaching Ulaanbaatar.

Ulaanbaatar, as the capital of Mongolia, not only boasts a well-connected transportation network, but also serves as a vital hub linking China, Mongolia, and Russia, facilitating smooth trade and commerce between Asia and Europe.

China Tobacco Shaanxi Industrial Co, the sole enterprise in Shaanxi province qualified to produce tobacco, primarily manufactures tobacco, cigarettes, cigars, and other related products, which are exported to Ulaanbaatar.

"We have adopted an international intermodal transportation method that includes front-end road transportation, comprehensive logistics services, domestic transport, port handling, export customs clearance, and overseas transport. This has enhanced the efficiency of transportation, reducing logistics costs by around 8 percent and providing tangible benefits to our customers," explained Zhang Ping, deputy manager of the marketing department at Xi'an Railway Logistics Center.
