In recent years, all departments of Guangxi Railway have actively integrated into the development of the land-sea trade corridor, and promoted the combined transportation consisting of rail-sea and highway-railway transit.
Fangchenggang Railway Station is one of the largest freight stations in Guangxi, and delivered 37.16 million metric tons of cargo in 2018, an increase of 10 percent year-on-year, accounting for one third of the total number of China Railway Nanning Group's. Since the first cold chain express launched in 2016, Fangchenggang Railway Station has achieved normalization on the operation of five cold chain lines to Beijing, Shanghai, Shenyang, Jinan, and Chongqing, setting a benchmark for cold-chain logistics throughout the country.
