Awesome! Qinzhou Port Praised by the Premier!
Date: June 30,2020   

On the morning of May 23, 2020, Premier Li Keqiang, who attended the deliberation of Guangxi delegation at the third session of the 13th National People’s Congress, frequently nodded with praise on hearing that Beibu Gulf Port’s growth rate in cargo and container throughput for the first four months of this year topped China, amid the report delivered by Mr. Wei Tao, N.P.C. Deputy, Secretary of the Party Committee and Chairman of Guangxi Beibu Gulf International Port Group Co., Ltd..


For the first four months, Qinzhou Port has witnessed an increase against the overall downward trend, with its throughput of cargoes amounted to 40.14 million tons and its container throughput reached 962,000 TEUs.


Among the throughput volumes, Guangxi CRIntermodal completed 71,400 TEUs, a 125% increase compared with the same period of last year, which accounted for a half of the total amount of 2018 and 2019. A total of 970 China-Europe sea-rail intermodal block trains (with 48,500 TEUs in total) were departed or received, a 78% up compared with the same period of 2019.


With the establishment of Qinzhou Port Area of China (Guangxi) Pilot Free Trade Zone which offered access to multiple resources, Qinzhou Terminal has become a significant hub for China-Europe sea-rail intermodal block trains, playing an increasingly important role in constructing China’s new western land-sea corridor.
