Lianyungang Port invests in intermodal hub in Khorgos

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.
