BAISE, China, Nov. 29, 2021 /Xinhua-AsiaNet/--

Recently, the launching ceremony of "Baise Yihao" special train of 
Baise-Shenzhen cold chain logistics special line was held in China-ASEAN 
Agricultural Products Trading Center, which marked that Baise agricultural 
products officially entered Shenzhen market through cold chain logistics 
special train and became another effective means for Baise to deeply integrate 
into Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area (GBA) construction, according 
to the Publicity Department of Baise City.

Baise City is a famous base for "transporting vegetables from the south to the 
north", where more than 3 million mu of ecological vegetables are planted every 
year. Since its official opening on December 11, 2013, "Baise Yihao" cold chain 
special train, as the national project benefiting the people by "transporting 
vegetables from the south to the north and fruits from the north to the south", 
has not only continuously transported fruits and vegetables produced in Baise 
to more than 100 large and medium-sized cities, 23 provinces and autonomous 
regions such as Beijing, Shanghai and Guangzhou, but also solved the sales 
problems of many fruits and vegetables with low unsalable prices in Baise, 
increasing farmers' income. Moreover, it has brought revolutionary changes in 
the transportation of agricultural products, and made great contributions to 
the  poverty alleviation and rural revitalization.

Meanwhile, with the unique geographical advantages of "Baise Yihao", a 
multimodal transport system for cross-border transportation of Baise Yihao sea 
rail and public rail has been established through ports including Longbang, 
Pingxiang and Fangchenggang, making Baise Yihao fruit and vegetable special 
domestic train and Baise Yihao Sino-Vietnamese cross-border direct transport 
train organically connect with the node cities of China-Europe Railway Express 
such as Chongqing, Chengdu, Wuhan, Zhengzhou and Beijing, as well as the node 
cities of southbound passages in Sichuan, Guizhou and Guangxi, expanding the 
influence of "Baise Yihao" to the whole country and even the world. "Baise 
Yihao" project has been listed by the Ministry of Transport as the first 
national demonstration project of cold chain logistics channel construction 
across Eurasia. In addition, Baise Yihao cold chain logistics system has been 
successfully integrated into the Belt and Road Initiative.

At present, Baise Yihao has established special logistics distribution centers 
for fruits and vegetables in Baise, Nanning, Fangchenggang, Pingxiang, 
Shenzhen, Beijing, Langfang, Tianjin, Shenyang, Zhengzhou, Wuhan, Chongqing, 
Chengdu, Ho Chi Minh City, Hanoi, Phnom Penh, Bangkok, etc. Relying on its vast 
network, Baise Yihao has basically achieved the goal of starting from Baise, 
based in Guangxi, influencing the whole country and linking ASEAN.

Since its opening at the end of 2013, "Baise Yihao" domestic special train has 
run 233 times, with a total freight volume of about 116,000 tons; since the 
opening of Baise Yihao Sino-Vietnamese cross-border direct transport train on 
November 28, 2017, 164 trips have been operated with a total freight volume of 
69,000 tons.
