China is establishing a green service route for cross-border support for commerce via the China Railway Express in Chang’an, according to the National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC). New routes will be developed to expedite international cargo flows.
The NDRC plan includes establishing overseas warehouses to help reduce export costs for enterprises as part of offering agency operations, logistics, distribution, and sales services. Countries along the Belt and Road investing in pavilions in Xi’an in the Shaanxi Province may be offered support.
The new International Land-Sea Trade Corridor in western China is supporting the region to expand global commerce. The logistics passage was built in cooperation with several western Chinese provinces and Singapore. More business now can reach the world markets via the Beibu Gulf of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region as it offers lower logistics costs and shorter travel time for goods.
Domestic rail is also being expanded in the Yangtze River Delta by 17,000km by 2025. The railway will connect cities with over 200,000 residents and larger cities will include 8,000km high-speed railways. The railway expansion will also significantly consumer steel products produced in the region.
