Guangdong Logistics Information

Guangdong province is located along China’s southeastern seaboard near Hong Kong and Macau. It has a well developed transportation network which includes seven international airports, several ocean ports along the Pearl River Delta, and an intercity express rail between its largest cities; Dongguan, Guangzhou, and Shenzhen. Ocean ports in Guangdong have an average annual capacity of 610 million tonnes (26.4 million TEUs). The port of Guangzhou is the biggest port in southern China, which creates large economic flow, and is the fifth largest in the world. The port of Shenzhen is the ninth largest in China and one of the fastest growing ports today. These ports are located along the Pearl River Delta and together generate much support for the China’s economic supply chain. Baiyun Airport in Guangzhou, one of China’s main air hubs for cargo and passengers, has received special focus for development and improvement from the Chinese National Government. Guangdong’s Special Economic Zones (SEZ) in Shantou, Zhuhai and Shenzhen are all linked to international destinations via seaports and airports.
