However, the detection of railways is very strict. You may be much stricter when you go from the goods to the railways. Disinfection must first understand the origin of the goods. If the goods come from the high-incidence areas, they will be correct. Carry out detailed inspections to ensure that the goods must be delivered safely to the station.
[Explanation] Li Chengyuan also said that because of the impact of the epidemic, some manufacturing and electronic goods suitable for road transportation and air transportation are gradually being transferred to the railway transportation field.

On the one hand, the overseas orders of CEIBS have continued to increase, on the one hand, because some customers who previously used air, sea and road transportation may be hindered by the impact of the epidemic, and then switch to rail transportation. This is the order that does not decrease. A factor that reverses growth.

During the epidemic period, in order to ensure that the China-Europe trains can operate smoothly and normally, our China-Europe train trains are all under closed management. That is to say, after we leave the unit, and then reach the transfer point, we will be directly in the apartment, and we will not be able to return home. Ca n’t go out, and then stay in the unit after returning to the unit. If we ca n’t go out, we ca n’t go home. This prevents us from getting infected during the process of going home, which causes the China-Europe train to operate abnormally. During the epidemic, the operation of the China-Europe Railway was the same as in peacetime and was not affected in any way.
