Recently, China Railway Nanning Group Co., Ltd. has introduced a number of preferential policies for freight miscellaneous charges to reduce the logistics costs of enterprises and provide reliable transportation support for work and production resumption.

China Railway Nanning Group Co., Ltd. has given full play to the advantages of railway transportation. It has provided temporary reduction of freight miscellaneous charges, and temporarily halved the fees for late payment of freight miscellaneous charges, freight value-insured transportation, stranded wagons, etc., so as to realise the fast circulation of goods in upstream and downstream enterprises.

Focusing on lowering freight miscellaneous charges and improving transportation efficiency, China Railway Nanning Group Co., Ltd. has unblocked the major transportation artery for work and production resumption. To effectively solve the overstock of 13,000 diesel engines for export in Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Group Co., Ltd., it has given them priorities in organization, loading, arrangement and coupling for transportation. It also transported 16,000 tons of white sugar for Guangxi Fengtang Biochemical Co., Ltd. to ensure sufficient supply of raw materials for food and drug enterprises in Guangdong, Fujian and other places.

As of 14 April, China Railway Nanning Group Co., Ltd. has delivered 34.111 million tons of goods this year, up 7.2% year-on-year. It has surrendered over RMB 13.3 million profits to local agricultural industry and enterprise freight owners, helping enterprises resume work and production, and assisting economic and social development.
