Development of Domestic Trade Container Transportation Market in China

Part of the Current Chinese Economic Report Series book series (CCERS)


In China, the domestic trade container transportation industry is a relatively exclusive market, which is not open to the foreign firms. This is in stark contrast to the foreign trade container transportation market. In recent years, domestic trade container transportation market in China has expanded rapidly, and competition in such industry is becoming fiercer than ever. In the coming future, with changes in the growth pattern of China’s economy, the domestic trade container transportation market will continue to grow steadily. The level of informatization and services will be also be elevated.
