"China freight train" in first trip to Barking

China has launched a direct rail freight service to London, as part of its drive to develop trade and investment ties with Europe, according to BBC.

China Railway already runs services between China and other European cities, including Madrid and Hamburg.

The train will take about two weeks to cover the 12,000 mile journey and is carrying a cargo of clothes, bags and other household items.

It has the advantage of being cheaper than air freight and faster than sea.
