Ultimately, Khorgos is expected to become a central trade destination for manufacturing, transhipping, warehousing, importing, and exporting.”

Cargotec company Navis has successfully implemented its N4 terminal operating system (TOS) at Khorgos Gateway Dry Port in Kazakhstan. With an aim to build a modern dry port operation, the terminal seeks to meet increasing transshipment volume by implementing software to complement its high-level automation.
