An international land-sea logistics port has started operation in Southwest China’s Guizhou province with an annual transportation capacity of approximately 5 million tonnes.

The Dulaying international land-sea logistics port, located in the provincial capital Guiyang, recently saw its first train loaded with 1,650 tonnes of bauxite depart for the Qinzhou port in South China’s Guangxi Zhuang autonomous region, from where the cargo would be shipped abroad.

The port is a key station listed in the development plan of the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor, a trade and logistics passage jointly built by Singapore and provincial-level regions of western China.

The port connects some of China’s major railway lines and the Yangtze River Economic Belt, and is expected to strengthen Guizhou’s link with economic hubs of western China such as Chengdu in Sichuan province and Chongqing municipality, said the Guizhou provincial development and reform commission.
