All five logistics industrial parks in Yiwu, East China's Zhejiang province, have resumed operations, providing logistical support to the opening of the Yiwu International Trade City on Feb 2, local media reported on Jan 31.
"We received 400,000 metric tons of cargo this morning, which will be delivered with four 17.4-meter trucks," said Zhan Xiaojun, who is in charge of Sanzhi Logistics in Yiwu.
Zhan noted that the company added 20 interprovincial freight routes in 2022 to allow cargo to be transported directly to its destination.
As China eased its COVID-19 prevention and control measures in the second half of last year, the cargo throughput of Zhejiang Zhanma Logistics Co Ltd picked up rapidly with more freight routes and more efficient transportation, according to general manager Xie Mingjin.
Xie said that the company currently has 40 trucks and dispatches 10 17.5-meter trucks to Hunan, Hainan, Guangzhou, and other provinces every day.
Logistics is crucial to Yiwu, and this year the city will construct an efficient global logistics network based on Yiwu-Xinjiang-Europe freight trains, the sixth port area of Ningbo-Zhoushan Port, and the aviation logistics port in Yiwu, according to the Yiwu market development committee.
