Crates of car parts, truck tires, bags of fish meal and chemical containers are piling up at China's largest freight marshalling yard with no rail wagons to take them anywhere.
The central government has also put priority on the transport of grains and fertilizers, meaning that a lot of everything else, including steel, gets left behind at stations or ports.
The sprawling Zhengzhou East station in the central province of Henan, built in 1997, reveals the extent of the problems. Next to the container terminals in the goods car section, workers rely on tiny, hand-written tags to separate bags of jute, sacks of herbs, metal pipes in straw and bicycles for shipping to the right destinations.
