In June this year, the Luoyang to Central Asia direct international train was officially included in the national railway operation map, leaving Luoyang through the Helgas port to Kazakhstan, Uzbekistan and other countries. In August, the YTO (Luoyang) international land port was identified as the "inland port" of Luoyang city by Shandong Port Group.

Since this year, the port has completed container throughput of 11523 TEU, and the goods include agricultural machinery products, solar photovoltaic modules, refractory materials, mechanical equipment, sanitary ware, household appliances, building materials, decorative materials and so on. The YTO (Luoyang) international land port is accelerating to become a new important international logistics platform in Luoyang city.
