Rail system in China

   At the end of 2018, the operating length of the rail network stretched over 132 thousand kilometers throughout China, with Henan and Hebei having the highest rail passenger transport capacities and while Shanxi and Inner Mongolia were the two regions with the highest freight volume. Due to the varied distribution of resources throughout the country, the rail system in China plays a crucial role in re-distribution.

High speed rail

   Being one of the largest countries on earth in terms of area and population, the need for transporting goods and people efficiently on a large scale pushed China to invest in the development of high-speed rail over the last decade, which has led to one of the most developed high-speed rail systems in the world. The two fastest trains in the world operated in China as of 2019 on the longest high-speed rail network in the world of over 35,000 kilometers. The total volme of passenger transported by high-speed railways in China has started with 0.01 billion in 2008 to a 2.29 billion in 2019.
