NORTH China’s Hohhot inland port jointly built by Hohhot Railway Bureau and Tianjin Port Group has been put into operation which will provide links to carry 100 million tonnes of cargo a year.
The two parts also have commenced construction of inland ports in Inner Mongolian cities like Wuhai, Bayannur, Baotou, Erdos, Ulanqab and Erenhot.
The inland port will bring port service to hinterland based on the current railway network between Inner Mongolia and Tianjin so as to ease the shortage of transport capacity and increase cargo volume from Inner Mongolia reaching Tianjin port.
The inland port, also called dry port, functions as a logistics hub and is equipped with services such as customs, commodity inspection and issuing a bills of lading.
