Tangshan Port set up an inland port in Xi'an, Shaanxi province in Northwest China, on March 27. The two ports will work together to promote the operation of Xi'an-Tangshan Port land-sea intermodal transport, and add new momentum to the Xi'an land-sea intermodal transport corridor.
Tangshan in Hebei province in North China, a coastal city with 4467 square kilometers of sea area and 229.7 kilometers of natural coastline, has the best port and seaway conditions in the Bohai Bay.
Tangshan Port, as the frontier for the new round of opening up in Tangshan and Hebei province, takes serving the national strategy and local economy as its responsibility, and is making great efforts to build the development pattern of large passage, large logistics and large trade.

Xi'an is the starting point of the ancient Silk Road, located at the geographic center of China. It has the shortest average distance, the lowest cost and the highest comprehensive logistics efficiency. As China's first inland port with international and domestic double codes, Xi'an Port has gradually formed a land, sea and air transportation and logistics system that runs through Europe and Asia.
