Xi'an International Trade and Logistic Park
Xi'an International Trade and Logistics (ITL) Park is an economic pilot zone established by Xi'an and Shaanxi province to build a new highland for inland reform and opening-up. It is an important starting point and main platform for the province and city to implement the national Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
It is also the core section of the China (Shaanxi) Pilot Free Trade Zone (FTZ), the new eastern center of the the construction of the Greater Xi'an national central city, and home to the main venue of the 14th National Games.
Located in the delta region between the Bahe River and the Weihe River in northeast Xi'an, capital of Shaanxi province, ITL Park's planned control area is 120 square kilometers and the planned construction area is 89.89 square kilometers.
Its backbone road network is seamlessly connected with Xi'an Third Ring Road and Xi'an Ring Expressway. It is 28 kilometers away from Xi'an Xianyang International Airport, five kilometers away from Xi'an North Railway Station, and only a 15 minute-drive from Xi'an Administrative New Center.
Xi'an Metro Line 3 which passes through the park, has been completed and opened to traffic, and Metro Line 14 will be under construction.
The park is seamlessly connected with eight expressways such as the Shanghai-Xi'an Expressway, Baotou-Maoming Expressway, and Lianyungang-Khorgos Expressway, which is a national multimodal transport demonstration base.
Since its establishment in 2008, relying on the three core platforms of Xi'an Comprehensive Bonded Zone, Xi'an Railway Container Center Station, and Xi'an Highway Port, the park has pioneered the "inland port mode" of "port inward migration, on-site billing, sea-rail intermodal transport, and seamless docking."
It has formed a pattern of opening-up based on the Chang'an international freight train, Xi'an Port, first-class open ports, and cross-border e-commerce pilots.
The park was written four times in the national strategies, such as the Guanzhong-Tianshui Economic Zone Development Plan and Guanzhong Plain Urban Agglomeration Development Plan.
It has proposed support to Xi'an land port construction, created the China-Europe freight train brand, and built an international comprehensive transportation hub.
It has won 15 national titles, including "national modern service industry innovation base," "national cross-border trade e-commerce service pilot core area," and "national e-commerce demonstration base.”
To date, the park has formed an industrial system lead by its port-based industry, e-commerce, new finance, modern trade logistics, and sports and health, striving to build the largest inland-type international transit hub and trade and logistics hub in the Belt and Road.
