Guoyuan Port in the southwestern city of Chongqing, regarded as the “golden gateway” to the vast inland area, lies at the head of Yangtze River, while Shanghai lies at its tail.
Guoyuan Port is the largest port in Chongqing, which is the largest city on the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. The port is planning to raise throughput by promoting intermodal transport and improving transshipment efficiency to take advantage of China’s “Mother River” and become a major international inland port.
