A TRUCK loaded with a standard container of goods from Germany has arrived in the city of Taicang in east China's Jiangsu province, marking the first direct cargo truck between Taicang and Germany since the start of the coronavirus outbreak.

The cargo truck, belonging to Sino-Europe Trucking (Jiangsu) Logistics Service Co left the German city of Duisburg on February 15 and arrived at Taicang on March 1 after travelling 12,000 kilometres, reported Xinhua.



Affected by the epidemic, many overseas air cargo and sea cargo routes to China have been cancelled or reduced, according to general manager Hu Rongyi.



The company decided to resume its cargo truck service from Germany to Taicang, which is 40 per cent cheaper than the cost of airfreight.



In order to provide support for more companies to lower logistics costs and resume production, Mr Hu said the company has boosted the frequency of trucks to four a week since the Spring festival holiday.



So far, the company has transported 50 batches of commodities worth CNY30 million (US$4.3 million).
