On Saturday, a 10,000-tonne-class sea-going vessel sailed through the waters of central Chongqing Municipality, becoming the first ship of its size to sail into the upper reaches of the Yangtze River. 

The Innovation 5, carrying over 5,000 tonnes of food, departed from Ningbo-Zhoushan Port in the eastern coastal province of Zhejiang on April 24. It traveled via the Chongqing-Zhoushan river-sea direct route, which links directly the municipality in the upper reaches of the Yangtze River with the sea. 

Thanks to the Chongqing-Zhoushan river-sea direct route, the transportation time between harbors in Chongqing and Ningbo-Zhoushan Port has been shortened by about 20 days compared with traditional river-sea intermodal transportation.
