The Wuhan-Lodz route will improve the competitiveness of Chinese goods

On April 23, the first cargo train departed from the Chinese city of Wuhan to the Polish city of одód. Wuhan, the capital of Hubei Province, is a major commercial, industrial and logistics center located in central China, on the banks of the Yangtze River.

The freight train consists of the 41 car, the total amount of goods sent for export is over 12 million dollars. Most of the products are electronics from Hon Hai / Foxconn, the world's largest supplier of electronic products, whose services are used by global brands Apple, Sony and Nokia. Electronics produced at the factory in Wuhan.

The Polish city of Lodz is located in the center of the country, 120 kilometers south-west of Warsaw. It is the center of the Polish electronics industry. According to experts, for electronics manufacturers the main factor is the maximum speed of delivery of the necessary goods. In the electronics industry, time plays a key role.
