Haoji railway, China's longest heavy-haulage rail link, has shipped 9.76 million tonnes of coal in the first six months, making a great contribution to energy supply and economic development of central and eastern provinces.
The 1,814.5-km railway, stretching from Haolebaoji of Inner Mongolia to Ji'an of Jiangxi province, officially started on September 28, 2019. It provides a convenient linkage between energy hubs of Inner Mongolia, Shaanxi, Gansu and Ningxia with consuming provinces of Hubei, Hunan and Jiangxi,
Despite with a designed transport capacity of 20 million tonnes per annum, the railway may be unable to reach this far in the first few years of operation given some supporting projects are still under construction.
More than 92% of shipments, or 9.06 million tonnes, came from Shaanxi province. The province's railway network delivered 102.87 million tonnes of goods in total over the first half of 2020, a 20.9% rise year on year, ranking second among all peers.
