CHONGQING - In about three years, a logistics hub jointly developed by Singapore and Chongqing companies will be up and running, managing operations across road, rail and river in the upper reaches of China's famous Yangtze River.

Located beside Guoyuan Port in south-western Chongqing, the hub will facilitate the flow of container cargos transported via the river to the Southern Transport Corridor railway network.

The hub, which sits on two land parcels totalling 670,000 sq m, will have warehouses as well as provide services such as packaging and distribution.



On Wednesday (July 4), Deputy Prime Minister Teo Chee Hean, who is on a nine-day visit to China, visited the Guoyuan Port in the northern part of Chongqing city to find out more about the hub.

It is one of the key projects under the Chongqing Connectivity Initiative (CCI), the third joint project between Singapore and China. The initiative aims to spur growth in the less developed western China region by enhancing transport and trade links.

Mr Teo was briefed about the port by Chongqing Mayor Tang Liangzhi as well as representatives from the port and the Singapore-Chongqing joint venture company, the Sino-Singapore (Chongqing) DC Multimodal Logistics.

A highlight of the Singapore co-invested logistics hub will be a electric-powered monorail system for transporting containers from the river port to the nearby Yuzui railway station, which is about 3km away from the Yangtze River banks.
