Description

Manzhouli began to build a new international freight yard in 2008, according to an employee with the Manzhouli land port office. The yard covers an area of 15 square kilometers and involved an investment of 3.3 billion yuan in the first phase. It was jointly funded by the Ministry of Railways, the China Railway Container Transport, and other well-known foreign companies. The yard has a railway logistics center, bulk coal, auto, ore and dangerous chemical yards, as well as a container station. It will help achieve more rational resource allocation at the railway port and have an annual reloading capacity of 70 million tons when put into operation.
