Xinjiang transport hub hauls path to success

By XING WEN | CHINA DAILY | Updated: 2021-02-23 00:00

After just one year of cross-border e-commerce exports, Alashankou Port in the Xinjiang Uygur autonomous region is already ranked the fourth busiest in China for such operations.

More than 50 million e-commerce packages destined for Europe passed through the port by the end of last year, with the export value reaching 1.17 billion yuan ($180 million), Alashankou's bureau of commerce and industrial information said.

A sorting and customs clearance center for cross-border e-commerce was launched in the Alashankou Comprehensive Bonded Zone in January last year. It handles goods for export mainly from Dongguan and Shenzhen in Guangdong province and Hangzhou in Zhejiang province. The items include toys, electronic products, clothing and smartphone accessories.
