It holds a prominent position among China’s integrated transportation hubs and is one of inland China’s principal cities along the Belt and Road.
Zhengzhou has a distinct advantage in integrated transportation: it is one of the largest railway container centers 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.
