It has seen continuous progress in various fields, including infrastructure interconnectivity, customs cooperation, platform collaboration, and opening new channels for fruit and vegetable exports.
Driverless cross-border transportation has provided a roadmap for building multi-modal transportation at the port, significantly enhancing its clearance capacity and upgrading the port from having a low annual throughput of less than 10,000 tons to ranking as the largest road port in the country in terms of clearance volume.
