Established in June 2009, Xi'an International Inland Port Investment & Development Group (ITL Group) is a large solely state-owned enterprise approved by Xi'an Municipal People's Government and invested by the Administrative Committee of Xi'an International Trade & Logistics Park. The Group owns more than 45 controlled and joint-stock subsidiary companies and 1,500 employees, with its assets reaching 35 billion yuan.
As the investor, constructor and operator of Xi'an Port, ITL Group always adheres to the development idea of "one body and two wings" to build a new inland hub together with the Administrative Committee of Xi'an International Trade & Logistics Park. The Group has always regarded "building ports" as its idea of development and has created the inland port model of "inward migrated port, on site ordering, multi-modal transportation, and seamless connection" with carriers covering designated ports of entry including a Category-1 railway port, a food port, a meat port and an assembled vehicles import port, as well as Xi'an's cross-border e-commerce customs clearance platform. It is the pioneer and forerunner in the construction and operation of China's inland ports, and is gradually building "Xi'an Port" into an inland international logistics hub port and the marshaling center of China Railway Express in Xi'an.
Ten years ago, the Group engaged in land development and infrastructure construction like maintenance of municipal roads and green belts. Nowadays, however, it has emerged as the investor, constructor and operator of Xi'an Port, and has facilitated the formation of a development trend of relying on "Xi'an Port" to agglomerate port-centered industries and drive the port-neighboring economy. The Group has become a comprehensive operation service provider of China's inland ports, and ithas formed five industrial patterns with the port-neighboring economy as the core, with its business covering port construction and operation, international logistics, port-centered trade, investment and financial services, and supporting services for production and living.
