On 22 June 2009, a Xinhui-Yantian Shuttle Feeder operated by Golden Fame Shipping Ltd. and Dah Chong Hong Logistics Company Ltd. began operating at YICT. The service includes a 96-TEU barge, which travels the 15-hour river route between Jiangmen's Xinhui District and Yantian. It calls at Yantian every Monday, Wednesday and Friday.
The new service offers Xinhui's manufacturers of paper, textiles, electronics, machinery, stainless steel and other products to conveniently and cost-effectively ship their goods to Yantian. The producers also benefit from batch transport as well as batch declaration and clearance at Yantian's Dapeng Customs. Additionally, by using the shuttle, Xinhui's shippers can track the shipping and customs clearance of their containers as soon as they arrive at the port through YICT's Easyport system.
YICT's competitive advantages include its world-leading operation rate, frequent international shipping services and efficient customs clearance processes. These advantages ensure that the port can meet shippers' import and export needs with premium service.
