Ningbo-Zhoushan Port has opened a new transport service to export new energy vehicles (NEVs).

According to state media outlet Xinhua, the port in China’s Zhejiang Province has become a new passage for NEVs via a sea-rail intermodal container transport service.

On 24 November the port took the delivery of the final of a total of 402 domestically produced NEVs on a box freight train from Jiangsu Province.

The NEVs will be moved onto a containership and head to Europe.

Given the insufficient capacity of the roll-on roll-off service in global shipping market and continuous increase of China’s domestic automobile exports, the new transport mode will make it easier for China’s NEVs to go overseas, said Xu Bin, head of the sea-rail transport service at the Ningbo Zhoushan Port Company Limited.

Ports across China moved a total of 244.9 million TEU in the first ten months of this year, an increase of 4 per cent compared to the same period in 2021.
