China Railway Urumqi Group Co., Ltd. has listed 477 upstream and downstream customers in Xinjiang as the monitoring objects for resumption of production, communicated with enterprises one by one to accurately learn their resumption progress. It has adjusted the transportation plans in time according to the enterprises’ transportation demands for products and raw materials after the resumption, and guaranteed short barge transportation services to reduce the logistics cost for the enterprises.
China Railway Urumqi Group Co., Ltd. has focused on the transportation of both mass freight and sundries. To increase the freight transport volume of general merchandise and promote the transportation of general merchandise in Xinjiang, it resumed the regular trains in southern and northern Xinjiang on 13 March and continuously expanded the transport scale.
It has particularly monitored the key matters such as train time table and pairs of district trains on the routes with large freight increment. It has strictly operated trains according to the diagram and optimised its production and organisation mode to ensure the fast loading, unloading and departure of trains. It also promoted the application of 35-ton open-top containers to increase the loading capacity of single car, and organised nine circulated trains of open-top wagons for cyclic application in Urumqi Terminal and southern Xinjiang.
Meanwhile the Asian ports were facing a lot of congestion during the last months of the year China Railway Urumqi Group Co., Ltd. decided to increase their rate from 125 to 195 $ /mt with consequence for several Chinese exporters to face a lot of difficulties to execute their contract obligation signed with their foreign customers. Discussion are going on.
