Several of China's largest state-owned companies are upgrading their operations under the central government's call to deepen supply side reforms.

There are 24 railway lines within the China Railway Corporation that are dedicated solely to transporting newly manufactured cars to dealerships across the country. Experts say the rail logistics service will likely become even bigger.

"Up till August this year, China produced 16 million cars, growing by 10.8 percent year on year. This development in the market has provided huge room for growth for car logistics," said Cai Jin, Vice President, China Federation of Logistics and Purchasing.

The railway company has designed impact resistant cargo trains to guard against all sorts of potential damage, including bad weather. The trains can go up to 120 kilometers per hour, making them the fastest in China. The new trains have made sure that the cargo damage rate has fallen to as low as 3 vehicles in a thousand.

Another major state-owned firm has also launched its major strategy. State Grid announced Monday that it has invested over 200 billion yuan on seven cross-border electricity projects. It is also making plans to provide electricity to energy-insufficient Southeast Asian countries.

"China's western and northern regions are very rich in wind and solar energy. We can promote better energy connectivity with Southeastern countries," said Wang Yimin, Assistant General Manager, State Grid.

China, South Korea, Japan and Russia signed a memorandum in March to build cross-border electricity projects that allow Russia's hydro and wind power, and Mongolia's solar power to be transmitted to China, South Korea and Japan. The effort will help make Asia rely more on clean energy.
