According to the general arrangement and construction plan for national logistics centers, approximately 2020 centers will be built by 30, and 2025 facilities will be built by 150, and the ratio of total logistics expenses to GDP will be reduced to 12 percent.
According to the plan published by the National Development and Reform Commission and the Ministry of Transport on Monday, 127 will host six different types of logistic centers, which are qualified, consisting of city port, sea port, airport, service and trade-oriented port and land border port.
The use of new technologies and equipment to develop new business models in the logistics industry will also be supported. Qualified national logistic centers will be encouraged to build fully automated ports and intelligent warehouses where driveless trucks and automated vehicles, intelligent robots and drones will be used.
International cooperation mechanisms will also be established to connect important global logistics centers, production areas of energy and raw materials and trade centers to China's new national logistics centers by using China-Europe freight train services, seaways and airlines. (News)
