With a population of over 10 million people, Zhengzhou is a city steeped in history and culture and one of China’s Eight Ancient Capitals. As the capital of Henan Province, Zhengzhou has grown into a trade and logistics center in Central China and made it to the list of National Central Cities. It holds a prominent position among China’s integrated transportation hubs and is one of inland China’s principle cities along the Belt and Road.
Zhengzhou has a distinct advantage in integrated transportation: it is one of the few cities in China that are located at the junction of many national highways and expressways. Nowadays, Zhengzhou has a powerful traffic network that reaches city-wide and serves as a critical hub for the entire nation. Zhengzhou is the largest railway container center in China and has the largest train fleet in Asia. Currently, the city is building Zhengzhou South Station, which will be China’s first integrated air-rail cargo distribution center. Zhengzhou Xinzheng International Airport is the busiest airport in central China in terms of both passenger and cargo traffic. By cargo traffic, it is the 7th busiest airport in China and among the 50 busiest airports worldwide. Its two-hour aviation circle covers more than 90% of China’s population and markets. Zhengzhou is among the first cities to be included in China’s plan to build a nation-wide logistics hub network, and it is the only airport-type logistics hub.
Zhengzhou has seven pillar industries, including new materials, biology and medicine, electronic information and automobile and equipment manufacturing, with the latter two worth over 500 billion yuan a piece. In 2018, the city’s GDP topped over one trillion yuan.
Prologis owns and operates multiple logistics and distribution facilities in Zhengzhou.
