Lianyungang Port Group has signed an agreement with the government of Khorgos for the development of an intermodal hub in the city.
The project will involve the construction of a logistics center combining both railway and road connections and bonded warehousing facilities.
China is increasingly looking to Kazakhstan as a key hub for its Belt and Road routes. Khorgos, a border town between China and Kazakhstan, is one of the major centres for a railway network connecting China and Europe.
Currently Lianyungang Port has a direct container train connection with Khorgos.
In 2017, Lianyungang Port, in partnership with Cosco, took a 49% stake in the Khorgos Dry Port.
