my country's port container rail-water intermodal transport volume increased by 14.7% year-on-year
The reporter learned at the 2023 Transportation Structural Adjustment and Multimodal Transport Development On-site Promotion Meeting held by the Ministry of Transport on the 14th: In the first nine months of this year, my country's ports completed a container rail-water intermodal transport volume of 7.53 million TEUs, a year-on-year increase of 14.7%. The "road-to-rail" and "road-to-water" transportation of goods have been further promoted. The proportions of coal and iron ore transported by major coastal ports through port-distributing railways, waterways, enclosed belt corridors, new energy vehicles, etc. have increased to 91.6% and 78.1% respectively..
In recent years, my country's multimodal transport has accelerated its development, its transportation structure has continued to be adjusted and optimized, and its service industry chain and supply chain capabilities have significantly improved. This provides opportunities for improving total factor productivity, promoting logistics quality, reducing costs and increasing efficiency, and improving the elasticity, resilience and safety level of my country's supply chain. A strong guarantee. With the in-depth advancement of "road-to-rail" and "road-to-water" bulk cargo transportation, the proportion of railway and water transportation in the country continues to increase. Road freight transportation has accelerated its transformation and upgrading, and the proportion of freight volume has dropped from 78% in 2017 to 73.3%. The proportion of railways responsible for medium and long-distance transportation of coal and coke by large industrial and mining enterprises in the main coal-producing areas of Shanxi, Shaanxi and Inner Mongolia, and the proportion of coal transported by clean methods such as port-drainage railways at major coastal ports are increasing.
As the national comprehensive three-dimensional transportation network accelerates, my country's multimodal transport infrastructure is further unblocked, which not only drives coordinated regional development, but also effectively promotes the high-quality development of the "One Belt, One Road" initiative.
