Key Highlights
- The rail freight sector is defined as consisting of revenues generated from freight transportation by rail.

- The Chinese government is currently supporting the OBOR project which seeks to increase connectivity between the Eurasian region with China, in order to boost trade and relations, by investments in infrastructure projects both home and abroad. In January 2017, the first Chinese freight train reached the UK after crossing eight countries in 18 days. German DB Cargo has estimated that as a consequence of these Chinese investments, the amount of goods transported between China and Germany will grow to 100, 000 twenty-foot equivalent (TEU) by 2020, up from 40, 000 TEU in 2016.
