Guiyang International Land Port and Qingzhen International Land Port, both located in Guiyang, Southwest China's Guizhou province, reported 5,126 freight train trips and the cargo throughput of 241,600 metric tons in the first quarter of this year, accounting for 21 percent of its targeted annual cargo throughput target.

During the period, the two land ports registered 94 freight train trips under the New Western Land-Sea Corridor, up 324.16 percent year-on-year, according to Zhang Yongjun, general manager of Guiyang International Land Port Co. The corridor is currently making full use of Guizhou's strategic location, boosting the efficiency of goods circulation in the inland area, and has gradually become a crucial channel for Guizhou products to go global.

Guiyang International Land Port is a major national freight station and is located in the Guiyang Free Trade Zone, directly connecting to local railway stations.

Relying on the convenient customs clearance and bonded and tax exemption policies granted by the free trade zone, Guizhou is deepening cooperation with coastal ports and shipping companies through the New Western Land-Sea Corridor and Guizhou-Guangdong Corridor and encouraging goods to be transported by rail rather than by road, before being transferred to ports in every corner of the world.

Along with the routes of the New Western Land-Sea Corridor, Guiyang has access to the China-Europe (Chongqing-Xinjiang-Europe) freight train route in the north and Guangxi Beibu Bay Port in the south.
