Erenhot port, the largest land port on the China-Mongolia border, witnessed a significant rise in import and export cargo volume in January.
This was announced by the railway authorities on 3 February.
The port saw over 1.42 million tonnes of import and export cargo in January, up over 90 per cent year on year, according to the China Railway Hohhot Group.
The port’s imported and exported cargo surpassed 1.18 million tonnes and 238,600 tonnes respectively in the month.
In January 2021, the port handled a relatively low volume of cargo as a result of the pandemic.

This year, the China Railway Hohhot Group has taken a slew of measures to improve support services such as cargo customs clearance, train inspection, and reloading operations.
The port in north China’s Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region now serves 64 China-Europe freight-train routes, connecting over 60 overseas destinations across more than 10 countries.
In August 2022, the port of Erenhot logged 10,000 China-Europe freight trains since the cross-border railway service launched.
