Once the capital of China’s Qing dynasty, Shenyang is an evolving provincial city. With a population of 8.3 million, Shenyang is the third-largest city in Northeast China. This heavily industrialized inland area is slowly developing consumer and services sectors.
Shenyang’s major industries include autos, chemicals, construction and equipment manufacturing. Recently, Shenyang begun to develop less resource-intensive industries, such as information technology. Shenyang has also started to recruit non-state-owned companies.
Industry is the primary driver of logistics and distribution demand in Shenyang. The city is an important railway hub, connecting the rail networks of Northeast China to the rest of the country. Trains move products and supplies from industrial properties and warehouses in Shenyang to the ports of Dalian and Yinkgou, about 250 miles away.
Prologis owns and operates logistics and distribution facilities in the Shenyang area.
