Week #22 - May 26th, 2020
I sincerely hope you are all staying sane and not getting easily irritated by every little thing (like I am) as a side-affect of the uncertainty of living during a global pandemic. Nobody said life was easy, and now it's more obvious, all we can do is try to make the best of everyday to try to improve the future, or at least try to cope with the present.

The first train of China Railway Express for Xi’an-Kathmandu route left the provincial capital of Shaanxi destined for Kathmandu, Nepal
The train left for Shigatse with goods ordered by different organizations and businessmen of Nepal, according to acting Ambassador to China, Sushil Lamsal. The goods were unloaded in Shigatse and brought to Kathmandu on Trucks.
The goods arrived in Kathmandu eight days after leaving Xi'an.
"Freight train service from Guangzhou and Lanzhou had also started earlier but stopped after some time. This is the first time that a freight train with goods meant for Nepal has left Xi'an," Lamsal told Setopati.
"The businessmen themselves have started this route. They are preparing to send a train once every week for now."
Xi'an is an important point in the Silk Road and freight trains to five routes of the Middle East and Eastern Europe are currently operated from there. "They have started train service for South Asia, Kathmandu for now, from that city. Nepali businessmen have also said that goods will arrive sooner from this route despite a higher fare," he added.
Bringing a container from Xi'an to the Nepali border using this route costs 16,000 Chinese yuan.
Lamsal said whether the route will be in operation in the long term will depend on the ease the businessmen will feel. "Train service from Xi'an will provide us a new alternative as to which route will be better for Nepal in terms of both time and money."

Fox Brasil Project Logistics Coordinated the Door-to-Port Logistics of an OOG Turbine & Accessories from Brazil to North America’s Green Zone
The backpressure turbine had dimensions of 610 x 420 x 320 cm.
What made this project special was the customer's sustainable business model to produce paper without cutting down trees, co-generate green energy with the steam turbine and recycle water from industrial processes.
For one single ton of paper produced, about 250 CBM of water is required. Through investments on new technologies on this equipment, the recycling of the very same 250 CBM of water, can reach a 92% level of recycling.
FOX Brasil’s project team intensively worked on the complete planning and execution for the road transportation, from the shipper up to the port of loading.

Coronavirus Vaccine Trials Have Delivered Their First Results — But Their Promise Is Still Unclear
Scientists urge caution over hints of success emerging from small human and animal studies.
On 18 May, US biotech firm Moderna revealed the first data from a human trial: its COVID-19 vaccine triggered an immune response in people, and protected mice from lung infections with the coronavirus SARS-CoV-2. The results — which the company, based in Cambridge, Massachusetts, announced in a press release — were widely interpreted as positive and sent stock prices surging. But some scientists say that because the data haven’t been published, they lack the details needed to properly evaluate those claims. Read more...
