The first train of Lanzhou to Qingdao combined railway transportation
Xinhua News Agency, Lanzhou, November 16 (Reporter Wang Mingyu and Zhang Zhimin)-- at about 11:00 on the 16th, the first train of iron-sea intermodal transport from Lanzhou to Qingdao was loaded with Chinese medicinal materials, PVC, aluminum, and other goods, which were shipped from Lanzhou City, Gansu Province, and will be shipped to Southeast Asia.
At the opening ceremony of the Lanqing Tiehai intermodal transport train held on the 16th, the reporter learned that the Shandong Port Group has cooperated with the Lanzhou International Continental Port in Gansu Province to build an inland port. On this basis, they have cooperated with railways, shipping companies and relevant logistics enterprises to launch "packages" such as container, iron and sea transport, and strive to move Haikou to their doorstep. To provide more convenient and high-quality services for the import and export of Gansu Province and its surrounding areas. The first line of rail-sea intermodal cargo from Lanzhou to Qingdao has been loaded into sea containers and declared at Lanzhou. After arriving in Qingdao, it will be shipped directly through customs and shipped to Southeast Asia.
According to reports, in the past, the import and export goods in China's inland areas were mainly transported by bulk trucks, and after the goods arrived at the port, they were replaced and loaded, which not only complicated the operation process, but also easily caused cargo damage. After the opening of the Lanqing Tiehai intermodal transport train, the inland port will have a shipping box return point. After the goods are loaded into the shipping box on the spot, they can be delivered to the customer without changing the box.
Li Jianliang, deputy director of the Lanzhou International Land Port Management Committee in Gansu Province, said that they will promote the normal operation of Lanqing trains and strive to operate one train a week.
Li Fengli, general manager of Shandong Port Group, said that enterprises in Gansu Province and surrounding areas import more than one million tons of metal ores and bulk cargo through Shandong ports every year. Exported machinery and equipment, metal products, agricultural and sideline products are sent to all parts of the world through the port of Shandong. Shandong Port Group and Lanzhou International Land Port in Gansu Province will also cooperate to create an international transit transport corridor. Bulk goods from Japan, South Korea and Southeast Asia can be imported into Shandong ports and transported by rail and sea to Central Asia. The joint construction of inland ports and the opening of the iron-sea intermodal transport train will help to form a transportation pattern of mutual aid between the east and the west and the linkage of land and sea at home and abroad.
