Chongqing Bonded Port

Chongqing Bonded Port

     Phase I construction work of Cuntan Port began in January 2006, while Phase II commenced construction in September 2007 and is scheduled for completion by the end of 2009. Phase III work began at the end of 2008 and is due for completion by 2011. Upon the full completion of the Cuntan port zone, its annual container throughput can amount to 2 million TEUs.

The bonded port area, now containing a water port and airport, will be extended to cover railway container service, according to Zhou Mubing, vice mayor of Chongqing. After the completion of the Lanzhou-Xinjiang Railway and Lanzhou-Chongqing Railway routes, Chongqing will be directly connected to the Ala Mountain pass and the rest of Eurasia. For fast transportation, waterway, airline and railway can be integrated together so as to drive Chongqing to be the logistics and transport center in the southwest and even the whole western area of China.

Therefore, the bonded port area will function as the pilot for constructing Chongqing as the economic center at the upper reaches of the Yangtze River and an inland opening city in China.
