This train carries a diverse cargo, including polyethylene from the United Arab Emirates, coconut sugar from Sri Lanka, and casual shoes from Vietnam.

Huang Jiangnan, Director of Qinzhou Port East Station, highlighted the diverse range of goods transported through the corridor. "This year, the channel has managed exports from Sichuan, Guangxi, and Chongqing, ranging from automobile to motorcycle and generator parts. Meanwhile, imports have included ghee from Indonesia and pulp from Vietnam, totaling 1,143 different types of goods," Huang said.

Increased shipment volumes result from strategic operational enhancements. Guangxi Coastal Railway Economy & Trade Co., Ltd. has fostered collaboration among Qinzhou, Beihai, and Fangcheng Ports, enabling real-time sharing of schedules, berths, and cargo data.

Enhancements include integrating operations between Qinzhou Railway Container Center Station and Beibu Gulf Port's automated terminal, cutting handling costs by over 100 yuan (USD 13.8 ) per container.

Introducing 35-ton wide-bodied containers in rail-sea intermodal projects aims to streamline operations and reduce logistics costs by minimizing container transfers.

The ILSTC supports 21 regular routes, covering 72 cities and 152 railroad stations across 18 provinces in China. It connects globally to 503 ports in 121 countries.
