A train loaded with more than 600 metric tons of food aid from Gansu province arrived in Shanghai on Tuesday.

The supplies, which were packed in more than 60,000 boxes, comprise 12 featured vegetables and fruits growing in the province's plateau area. The train also transported some 7,000 boxes of beef noodles from Lanzhou.

These foods will be distributed to communities in the Huangpu, Yangpu, Jing'an, Baoshan, Jiading and Hongkou districts, and to Ruijin Hospital where COVID-19 cases receive medical treatment.

With the support from railway bureaus from Lanzhou of Gansu and Shanghai, the transportation of these supplies took less than 50 hours. The first batch of supplies were already distributed to the Changbai Xincun subdistrict at 10 am on Tuesday.
