One of the trains was jointly organized by the New Land-Sea Corridor Operation Co., Ltd and Xi’an International Land Port Multi-modal Transport Co., Ltd.

Both corporations organized the cargo from Shaanxi Province. After this batch of goods was assembled from Xi’an Land Port to Chongqing Tuanjiecun Railway Station, it went south to Vientiane, Laos.

Bring together the strengths of all parties to jointly shape the international connectivity channel.
