Caixing Global reported that China’s busiest coal freight railway Daqin line saw shipments plunge by 7.95% YoY to 35.41 million tons in November amid weakening domestic demand for coal. Total shipments for the first 11 months of this year slumped by 4.15% from the same period last year to 376 million tonnes. This year its operator believes it could bring as many as 30 million tonnes less. Daqin Railway sources said “They believe a contraction in domestic coal demand has squeezed the line’s freight volume.”

Daqin line starts at in Datong in Shanxi province and passes through four provinces ending in Qinhuangdao in Hebei province to carry coal from Shanxi, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia. Last year, it delivered 451 million tonnes, accounting for 14.14% of China’s overall rail shipments of the combustible rock.
