Huzhou was recently shortlisted as a national model city in terms of green freight transportation, local media reported.

A total of 31 cities from across the nation made the list released by the Ministry of Transport.

In the next three years, the city will fulfill a number of tasks before it is conferred the honorary title.

One of its tasks is the building of an efficient, intensive, low-carbon, environmentally friendly and urban-rural integrated freight distribution system by 2025.

The city has also been tasked with building facilities, including seven public distribution centers and more than 300 terminal distribution stations.

In addition, authorities have mandated that more than half of the freight delivery vehicles added to the city during the three-year period should be powered by new energy.

A comprehensive transportation system has taken shape in Huzhou in recent years. Today, people from the city can get to any other major city in the Yangtze River Delta - a region encompassing the provinces of Jiangsu, Zhejiang and Anhui as well as Shanghai municipality – within an hour. Moreover, it takes just 30 minutes to travel between any two administrative areas under its jurisdiction.
