Inland ports on the rise

5 November 2014
The establishment of “inland ports” is on the rise, with economic centres such as Xian and Urumqi leading the way, according to China Ports Network.

Inland ports have emerged only recently thanks to the construction of much improved road and rail connections, typically on the national networks. Many have their own customs clearance facilities. Xian, the first of its kind, has reported a robust growth in throughput, though no numbers were published. Xian Container Rail Centre alone handled more than 290,000 TEU in the first six months of 2014.

More than 70 inland ports have either opened for business or plan to be constructed, mostly in landlocked places such as Xinjiang, Shanxi and Henan.

Wuhan has already been developing ties with Xian and Zhengzhou and is on a mission to find more inland ports to boost its position as a transhipment centre in the middle reaches of the Yangtze River.

Coastal ports actively seeking inland partners include Ningbo, Qingdao and Guangzhou.
