Beibu Gulf Port Group has hit over 1.4 million TEU in the first quarter of 2022.
The group, which operates Beibu Gulf Port in south China’s Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region, enjoyed the 11.2 per cent rise compared to the same period in 2021.
The group has recently launched cold-chain express lines linking the port with south-eastern Asian countries Thailand, Cambodia, and Vietnam.
According to its statement, the new lines have contributed to a 32-per-cent year on year increase in the number of TEU containers of cold-chain goods the port handled in the first quarter.
The group has also announced three new container routes over the same period.
The Beibu Gulf Port port serves as an important transit point in the New International Land-Sea Trade Corridor built by western Chinese provincial regions and Singapore and it currently offers 67 shipping routes connecting it with more than 300 ports around the world.
The port ranked eighth in our PTI’s list of ‘Top 10 Ports in China 2021’.
