Xiaomo Port has launched a new ro-ro shipping route linking the port to the Persian Gulf.
A ro-ro ship loaded with 215 vehicles departed from Xiaomo International Logistics Port in China’s Shenzhen Municipality and was bound for the Middle East on 5 January.
Xiaomo Port’s phase-one project has seen the completion of the construction of two 100,000-tonne-level multi-purpose berths and a 50,000-tonne-level berth.
The port’s terminals were designed to handle 4.5 million tonnes of traffic annually.
The port plans to construct 49 berths in the future, with a gross annual throughput of 75 million tonnes.
The port was officially opened for operations in December 2021 and it had obtained an official permit to launch their international logistics services by the end of 2022. It currently runs domestic and international ro-ro shipping routes.
China’s key economic hub, Shenzhen, is hastening its development as an international logistics centre.
Xiaomo Port is growing into a vital strategic logistics hub in Shenzhen through leading the development of smart and contactless logistics.
