Nestled at the foggy confluence of the Yangtze and Jialing Rivers deep in China’s interior, Chongqing is a sprawling, powerful and continually expanding metropolis. Nearly 30 million people live in the vast Chongqing metropolitan area, making it one of the world’s biggest urban concentrations.
Key to China’s efforts to develop and industrialize its vast interior, Chongqing is an important logistics and distribution link between East and Western China, thanks largely to its network of rail freight lines and highways. Chongqing’s Jiangbei International Airport, which handles more than 30 million passengers annually, is China’s ninth busiest. Chongqing is also home to the largest inland river port in Western China.
Chongqing has a diversified economy. It is home to 67 colleges and universities, as well as office parks that house internet and technology companies. Chongqing is best known for its automotive industry; the region is a center for production of cars, trucks and motorcycles.
Demand for logistics and distribution in Chongqing is driven by consumption, industrial production and trade.
