The sea-rail intermodal trains on the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor transported a total of 416,900 twenty-foot equivalent units (TEU) in the first nine months of 2021, expanding by 246.34 percent year on year despite the global COVID-19 pandemic and the tight shipping market.

The land-sea trade corridor now covers 62 stations in 29 domestic cities in nine provinces, autonomous regions and municipalities, transporting over 500 different categories of cargos to 304 overseas ports in 105 countries and regions on six continents since it started operation in 2017.

China Railway Nanning Group has been working with Beibu Gulf Port Group in recent years to move forward construction of main passages, major hubs and logistics facilities for rail transport. 

All of Guangxi's main rail passages heading overseas have now finished electrification renovation, which has increased their transportation capacity by 6.5 percent from that in 2017. A handling station for containers has been set up in Qinzhou, allowing the handling capacity of over 20 trains from the previous four.

A batch of professional berths has been constructed by Beibu Gulf Port Group to make the cargo handling capacity at Beibu Gulf Port grow by 60 million metric tons. At present, Beibu Gulf Port has opened 54 shipping routes for domestic and overseas trade. 

The cargo throughput of Beibu Gulf Port reached 200 million tons from January to September, increasing by 10.29 percent year on year. The handling capacity of containers expanded by 19.11 percent to 4.19 million TEUs during the same time period, maintaining a double-digit high-speed growth rate.
