The BRI - Belt & Road Initiative - by PRC [China] is an ambitious plan straddling Asia to Europe. This is the gateway, or the heartbeat of the New Silk Road.
From PRC to GER
- by sea it takes 45 days
- by rail, 2 wks

From PRC go high-value cargo like laptops & printers
From GER, FRA go wines and high-grade meats.
Since the rail gauges are different in PRC and KAZ/RUS, it takes 45 min to tsf the TEU containers from one train to another.
