Organized by China State Railway Group Co., Ltd, China Railway Express to Europe provides rail freight services connecting China and Europe and countries along the Belt and Road. It plays a significant role in facilitating the economic cooperation between China and countries along the Belt and Road. 

With the development of Belt and Road Initiative, provinces including Xinjiang, Gansu, Hunan, Zhejiang, Jiangxi, Chongqing and Neimenggu have launched China Railway Express to Europe in 2019, providing new ways for transporting timbers from Europe and Russia. China is now accelerating the development of Belt and Road Initiative and rail freight services including China Rail Way Express to Europe to further increase the efficiency of timber transportation between China and Europe, which will have significant impacts on the pattern of international timber trade trend and China’s domestic timber distribution system.
