Chang'an freight train drives rapid trade expansion
Since its launch in 2013, the China-Europe Chang'an freight railway service has extended from Asia to the hinterland of Europe. The variety of trade goods it carries has become rich and diverse and the number of its trains has grown rapidly.
The multimodal transport corridor centered on Xi'an Port in the Xi'an International Trade and Logistics (ITL) Park has been continuously improved, further magnifying Xi'an's advantages of location, timeliness and costs in the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI).
Relying on the China-Europe Chang'an freight train, Xi'an Silk Road E-commerce Co, headquartered in the ITL Park, is committed to creating large channels of "going out" and "bringing in" for enterprises along the Silk Road.
Shaanxi Siying Electronic Technology Co is engaged in research, development, production and sales of liquid crystal displays. It focuses on the development of customers in Belt and Road countries and continues to expand its export business relying on the logistics channel advantages the railway provides.
Since the ITL Park promoted integration of customs clearance and implemented reform measures such as "manifest merging", it has reduced declaration times and costs of enterprises and optimized the business environment.
The park also launched Shaanxi province's first government affairs service spot, "Louxiaoer," promoting government services in the Shaanxi Pilot Free Trade Zone
Since March 2018, ITL Park has been leading the way in implementing "facial recognition" technology in government affairs. People can now verify their identity through the "WeChat police authentication" mobile app without taking out their ID cards.
In the future, the ITL Park will accelerate the promotion of investment, trade and service facilitation to create a first-class international business environment.
