PIL offers additional gateway option to Chongqing via Qinzhou

Singapore, 22 November 2017 - Pacific International Lines (PIL) Group, Singapore’s leading containership operator offers an additional gateway option to Chongqing via Qinzhou in Guangxi. This option is available for our customers in addition to the traditional sea routes.

Customers today have the option to tap on the inter-modal expertise offered by PIL; shipping goods to Qinzhou and then accessing Chongqing by rail on the Qinzhou railway.

The Qinzhou railway is also known as the "Yuguixin" railway ("渝桂新"铁路) and it began operations in early September this year.

With the rail system in place, it takes roughly 48 hours for goods from Chongqing to be shipped out through the Southern China ports.

This additional route is demonstrative of PIL’s wider involvement in the Southern Transport Corridor under China’s Belt and Road Initiative.

Ms Lisa Teo, Executive Director (Corporate Development) of PIL said: “By having such unprecedented access into China and other remote regions of Asia, Europe and Africa, we expect to see heightened levels of cargo flows from previously inaccessible places by ships. Unlike the developed coastal cities, the inland regions of China are largely untapped and their potential growth could represent a new strong and steady source of cargo volume as they continue to develop.”
