Chongqing Guoyuan Port, a crucial shipping centre in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River, has recently been put into use. With an annual through capacity of 300 billion tons, it will be connected with Yuxin'ou (Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe) International Railway, via which cargo from the lower reaches of the Yangtze River in eastern and central China can be transported to Europe.

Although construction begin in 2008 and will complete in 2015, with a total investment of 10.5 billion yuan, the hub can already handle 400,000 TEU containers, 3 million tons of bulk cargo and 500,000 roll-on-roll-off trucks at the present time.

The port is designed to build a large logistics industry chain by closely linking its docks with the Highway Logistics Park, special railway lines, Warehousing Logistics Park and Lingang Industrial Park in the area.

The special railway lines to Guoyuan Port connect with Yuhuai (Chongqing-Hunan) Railway, which will open to traffic by the end of 2014, link to Yuxin'ou International Railway, which will boost the port's annual through capacity to 250 million tons.

Chongqing Customs and AQSIQ Chongqing branch say they have approved inspection and quarantine points, as well as customs supervision in the port's container terminal, expanding the port's foreign trade options.

According to the plan, the city's railway density will reach the average standard of developed European countries, laying a solid foundation for Liangjiang New Area's development.
