Railway freight traffic between Kazakhstan and China may reach 21.5 million tons in 2014, Tengrinews reports, citing Kazakhstan Temir Zholy National Railways Operator President Mr. Askar Mamin.

“With the new railway border crossing Altynkol-Khorgos put in operation, the freight traffic between the two nations totaled 19.4 million tons, 2.8 million tons up (17%) against 2012”, Mr. Mamin said.

The freight traffic in 2014 is expected at 21.5 million tons, with 17.5 million tons of them running through another border crossing (Dostyk station). Plans are afoot to ship around 38 million tons a year by 2020.

December 22, 2013 Kazakhstan and China jointly launched the Altynkol-Khorgos border crossing. Before that the only railway link ran from Dostyk station (in Kazakhstan) to Alashankow (in China). Since the latter was launched back in 1991 it handled over 156 million tons of freights.
