In recent years, the Chengdu International Railway Port has been vigorously implementing its “Chengdu-Europe Plus” strategy. The port has built an express container transport network connecting Shanghai, Shenzhen, Wuhan, Kunming, Guangzhou, Tianjin and other coastal and frontier cities Chengdu acts as the hub. The sources of goods have expanded to the Yangtze River Delta, the Pearl River Delta and the Bohai Economic Rim. Some goods come from Japan, South Korea, Hong Kong, Macao and ASEAN member states. To date, a multimodal transport collection and distribution system connecting the Silk Road Economic Belt, the 21st-century Maritime Silk Road and the middle and lower reaches of Yangtze River has come into being.
