Hubei is a landlocked province located in mid-eastern China, neighboring the municipality of Chongqing. All transport from Hubei to China’s coast is facilitated though highways, railways, and river transit. Over 160 river ports provide indirect links between Hubei’s cities and ocean shipping routes. Its largest port, the Port of Wuhan, is capable of carrying 89 million tonnes of cargo annually, making it China’s largest river port in China. Cargo from the Port of Wuhan is easily moved up the Yangtze River to Chongqing or downriver to Nanjing and Shanghai, where it can be transferred to ocean vessels. Wuhan is the center of a 90,000 km (55,900 miles)long rail network and a 90,000 km long highway network, connecting it directly to eight other provinces and 195 cities in China.
