Ningbo will accelerate the transformation and upgrading of its logistics industry to better serve the Belt and Road Initiative, said Chu Yinliang, vice-mayor of the city, at the 2017 China-CEEC Mayors' Forum on June 8.
The city in Zhejiang province, will strive to build an extensive logistics network with regions involved in the initiative, Chu said.
Aiming to develop an internationally influential service center for port and shipping logistics, Ningbo will improve the resource allocation capacity of Ningbo-Zhoushan Port, promote shipping business and break into the market for high-end shipping services.
Ningbo is one of the three biggest logistics centers in the Yangtze River Delta area. In 2016 Ningbo-Zhoushan Port was the busiest in the world in terms of cargo tonnage, with a total throughput of over 900 million tons.
