The Taicang and Nantong production base of China International Marine Containers (Group) Ltd (CIMC), a world leading supplier of logistics and energy equipment, is accelerating promotion of the Belt and Road Initiative by using its containers to provide logistics services.
The base, founded in East China in 1990, has become one of the largest producers of special containers and logistics equipment.
The base was assigned to take on several key projects at the national level. For example, it produced 800 containers used for the ribbon-cutting ceremony when the first China Railway Express reached Poland in 2016.
It produced containers for the Long March 5 and Long March 7 Series Launch Vehicles. The super-large size of the vehicles posed production challenges. The company redesigned the internal shape of the containers to avoid collision and damage during transportation.
Li Kequ, assistant general manager of the base, said it contributes to the country with customized and flexible production.
Further efforts will be made to support economic and trade exchanges between B&R countries.
