Given the increasingly complex global economic and trade landscape, YANTIAN, as a world-class hub port in the Greater Bay Area, actively responds to changes in the market and gains insights into customer demands to be well prepared for the trade rebound.

Continuously Optimise ETB Policies

To better make shipping plans for terminal operations, warehousing and and logistics services in advance and secure customers' shipment, YANTIAN has recently adjusted the ETB policies again: The ETB-10 policy (within 10 days before the estimated date of berthing) for export laden containers will be extended further until 31 May 2023; offering customers the daily gate-in quota of 13,000 export laden containers, an increase of more than 8% year-on-year.


New Services to Buck the Trend

Although the U.S. shipping market show signs of volatility, YANTIAN has been communicating with shipping lines to enrich service network to cater to the emerging market demand. Since January this year, YANTIAN has received 4 new services, including 3 Asia services and 1 Australia service, to support the China-ASEAN economic and trade cooperations, driving regional economic development.

Expand Cargo Catchment Areas with Intermodal Service 

Since the new year, YANTIAN has been working with all parties involved to establish new inland ports and port alliances. It opened YANTIAN's Inland Port in Chenzhou, Hunan Province on January 6, YANTIAN-Zhongshan Port Alliance on February 9, and will further upgrade service of YANTIAN's Inland Port in Changping, Dongguan in March. Through intermodal and feeder services, YANTIAN extends its hub port functions to a broader cargo hinterland to facilitate green transportation, achieve seamless connection between manufacturers and the port, and allow more enterprises to enjoy convenient port services at their doorstep.


New Equipment for a Smarter Port

In response to the call of green, low-carbon, and intelligent development, YANTIAN pushes forward the digital transformation in the East Port, Phases I, II, III & Expansion projects, and the West Port. On January 26 and February 17 respectively, 2 barge quay cranes and 8 remote-controlled RTGCs arrived at the terminal. The barge quay cranes are dedicatedly designed for feeders to allow them respond to the soaring operation demand, while the remote-controlled RTGCs not only improve the terminal operation efficiency, but also make the working environment safer. YANTIAN takes the initiative to use intelligent port equipment and facilities among ports in China, and plans to invest nearly CNY3 billion in purchasing 81 intelligent equipment such as remote-controlled quay cranes, RTGCs, and rail-mounted cranes to build a smarter port.


As a key gateway for export and import trade in South China, YANTIAN will stand together with our customers to respond to challenges brought by the changing international trade landscape. We will also keep working together with the port and shipping community to ensure the smooth and stable supply chain and industry chain in the Greater Bay Area, driving the stable and quality development of international trade in China.
