Tianjin Balitai Industrial Park (Tianjin Balitai IP) was established by the Tianjin municipal government in 2006 and covers an area of 6.15 sq km.
Tianjin Balitai IP is located between Tianjin's downtown and Binhai New District adjacent to Xiqingwei Electronic Industrial Park and Dagang Petrochemical Base. It is 15 km from the city's downtown, 20 km from Tianjin Binhai International Airport, 25 km from Tianjin Port, and 10 km from Binhai New District.
Tianjin Port is a major cargo port. Cargo from Beijing and North and Northwest China has to be loaded in Tianjin Port to be delivered to other coastal regions of China and to other countries.

There are also rail links to the Beijing- Shanghai Railway and the Beijing-Guangzhou Railway, two major arteries of China.
