Targets set for intermodal container routes

11 July 2012
China’s Ministry of Transport and Ministry of Railways have jointly issued a circular that sets a growth target of 20 per cent for the six intermodal container transport routes designated under a pilot scheme that was launched last year. The scheme aims to improve connections between rail container services and six ports along China’s coastline: Dalian, Tianjin, Qingdao, Lianyungang, Ningbo and Shenzhen.

Last year, container volume on these routes totalled 799,400 TEU.

Apart from integrated planning for infrastructure, the pilot scheme promotes a ‘one stop shop’ for rail, ports, forwarders and customs, guarantees the frequency and reliability of rail container services, and offers an integrated information platform where real-time tracking, online transactions, logistics planning and other functions are available. Through the scheme, the government aims to develop a few state-owned intermodal operators and standardise documentations and procedures.

Some major Yangtze ports are expected to be included in the next round of trials.
