Tianjin Port intends to be an obstacle-free modern multimodal transport channel. To date, it has opened bidirectional international trains from Moscow to Minsk, and expanded service to eastern Europe, connecting Russia, Mongolia, Central Asia and European countries, and countries along the 21st-Century Maritime Silk Road. The Tianjin Port China-Mongolia-Russia economic corridor multi-modal transport project has been selected as a China demonstration project.
The port focuses on the rising of Central China and China Western Development. It has established five market centers and 25 dry ports in Beijing, Hebei, Shanxi, Henan, Inner Mongolia autonomous region, Ningxia Hui and Xinjiang Uygur autonomous regions. It has also established ten sea-railway combined transportation channels and completed a modern logistics system in inland areas. Tianjin Port has also established relationships with shipping alliances.
