China’s largest river, the Yangtze, is becoming increasingly accessible to ships. So the news portal Splash 24/7 reports that yesterday in China, in Zhongxiang, a district of Chongqing municipality, a new port was opened for vessels with a deadweight of 10,000 tons. Large ships can move further and further along the Yangtze, opening up vast inland areas for exports and imports.
The port is located about 100 km northeast of Chongqing city center and has 14 berths. In the plans, the annual cargo turnover will be 25 million tons. A logistics park is also being built next to the port. The Chongqing-Xinsheng Port will also serve as the starting point for China-Europe freight trains on the Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe route.
