Belt And Road Offers Xi'an A New Opportunity
May 09, 2017

As China Daily reports,Xi’an in Northwest China's Shaanxi province is rapidly emerging as one of China’s most important inland ports.

The city’s Xi’an International Trade and Logistics Park has overcome its geographical constraints by promoting a new mixed logistics network, which combines sea, air and rail services.

Rail has been a particular area of focus, allowing Xi’an to reclaim its ancient role as China’s gateway to the great Silk Road connecting East Asia with Europe via the plains of Central Asia.

In 2013, the first China-Asia freight train left Xi’an for Almaty in Kazakhstan. Since then, freight train services have been launched between Xi’an and various Asian and European cities, including Warsaw, Poland, and Hamburg in Germany.

Xi’an port is also cooperating with costal ports in Shanghai, Qingdao, Ningbo and Tianjin to develop combined maritime-rail freight routes. With these combined transport services, goods can be transported to countries which cannot be connected purely by rail, such as Canada and the US.

Xi'an is the most important production base of huge electrical equipment in China,such as large transformer substation facilities and ultra high current rectifiers.  The inland port will supply a convenient and economical delivery way.
