With an area of only 11.2 square miles, Macau lacks the land area necessary for large industrial operations. It has no railways (with the exception of a light-rail passenger system under construction), and very little industry other then gambling and tourism. However, Macau’s status as a free trade port attracts sizable logistics operations. Macau is located along the central coast of Guangdong province, bordering the Zhuhai Special Economic Zone (SEZ) to the East. Macau International Airport operates a relatively large air cargo operation for its size, carrying 220,000 tonnes annually. Its ports, however, work on a much smaller basis, processing only 250,000 tonnes of cargo per year, much less than the average port in China. Highways connect all three islands of Macau to the Chinese mainland cities of Zhuhai, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen, and a bridge, planned for completion in 2016, will link Macau directly to Hong Kong.
