The first freight train from the eastern Chinese city of Zhengzdou has arrived in Hamburg, Germany.

It covered more than 10-thousand kilometres in just 15 days – halving the normal travel time by sea.

Officials say heavy cargo that cannot be transported by air, car parts and electronics will benefit from the new service.

It is hoped the transport link will lead to even stronger trade ties between the two cities.
