A train carrying 100 containers of furniture, clothes and electronic goods departed from Ganzhou on Thursday morning and is expected to arrive in Kazakhstan in 12 days.
Kazakhstan is the third Central Asian destination from the port, following Kyrgyzstan and Uzbekistan, said Zhong Dingyan, deputy head of Nankang District in Ganzhou.
Links to Tajikistan and Turkmenistan are expected in the near future, he said.
A hub for railways, roads and shipping transportation along the Yangtze River, Ganzhou is striving to become an international cargo distribution center for the Belt and Road.
