At 10:00 a.m. on August 13rd, with a sound of train whistle, the first Yiwu-Madrid Train with Wenzhou Footwear departed from the Wenzhou Railway Port. It will pass Jinhua,leave China from the Manzhouli Port, and arrive in Russia in 15-18 days. This train, filled with shoes and boots made in Wenzhou with a total weight of about 615 tons and a total value of about 4.1 million US dollars, embarked on the "New Silk Road".

For many years, the export logistics of Wenzhou footwear enterprises has been traditionally based on the single mode of sea transport. Affected by the COVID-19 epidemic, the sea and air transports of international channels are unstable because the container space is "hard to find" and export costs have increased exponentially. Therefore the main exporting channel of Wenzhou footwear enterprises is limited under constant pressure,     As a new cross-continental, long-distance and low-carbon transportation channel, the Yiwu-Madrid Train, under the successful establishment of Wenzhou's dual platforms of operation, has effectively opened a "golden channel" from Wenzhou to Europe, providing a new cross-border logistics approach for the exports of Wenzhou footwear enterprises and promoting the development of Wenzhou footwear industry. From January to July of 2021, Wenzhou exported 11.53 billion  yuan of shoes and boots, up 4.7% year-on-year.The export value of July is 2.41 billion yuan, hitting a new record high for single-month exports since this year.    According to the relevant staff of Wenzhou Bureau of Commerce, the Yiwu-Madrid Train of  Wenzhou constantly delivers daily commodities, clothing and footwear, auto parts, medical and epidemic prevention materials, and many other products “made in Wenzhou” to European countries, which contributes to accelerating the establishment of a "dual circulation" development pattern in which domestic economic cycle plays a leading role while international economic cycle remains its extension and supplement. According to the statistics, from January to July of 2021, the total frequency of the Yiwu-Madrid Train of Wenzhou was 54 times, an increase of nearly three times year-on-year.    Next, Wenzhou will further strengthen the overall planning of goods, improve the service networking and operation ability of the train, continue to create several special products trains, to promote the transformation of Yiwu-Madrid Train from as a logistics channel to a trading, opening and cooperation channel.
