Two Fuxing high-speed bullet trains between Beijing and Changsha have been roped in to deliver packages from Nov 11 to 20 to cope with the logistics demand created after the Nov 11 shopping festival. According to Beijing Railway Bureau, each train has set aside a carriage for goods, mainly documents, garments, food, electronic devices, and others.

This is the first time that high-speed trains are being used to cope with the delivery rush after the online shopping extravaganza. The delivery capacity is about 50,000 ton and delivery time will be cut down to six hours, which is faster than road transportation which usually takes 20 to 24 hours.
