Open up with high standards

In May 2017, Xi'an Port was approved by the State Council as a whole-vehicle import port, the first such facility in the province.

Being home to the first inland port in China, the ITL Park is developing the hub, portal and mobile economies and merging with global shipping systems through its international "Chang'an" freight trains.

With its development as an import port for whole vehicles, grains and meat, the Xi'an Port's capabilities as a cargo distribution hub have been further improved.

"Without these ports, the imports have to be transported to Shaanxi via coastal ports," Bai Qinbin, an official in charge of port affairs at the ITL Park's administrative committee.

These ports make the direct interaction between Shaanxi and the world possible, he added.

Sun Yimin, director of the administrative committee, recalled the visit of Pan Xinzhe, president of Volvo Asia-Pacific Logistics, during early April this year. Pan hoped that Xi'an would finish the construction, qualification application and trial operation of the whole-vehicle import port within three months.

Pan said that two other cities spent a year and half a year, respectively, on whole-vehicle import port construction and test operation.

The park shortened the expected three months to 36 days, which was achieved by the joint efforts of provincial and municipal departments of port, customs and quality inspection.
