A train loaded with epidemic prevention materials departed on Sunday from Chongqing and headed to Poznan, a major city in midwestern Poland. The route would pass through Alashankou in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region.

It was the first rail load of epidemic prevention supplies to be exported via block train by China Railway Express (Chongqing), or Yuxinou (Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe) International Railway during COVID-19 pandemic.

A block train is a freight train that runs as a complete unit from the loading point to the unloading point without intermediate stops.
