China’s Ningbo-Zhoushan port gears up for busy winter, reports Xinhua News.

Smooth flow of logistics supply chain

As the year ends, ships of over 10,000 tonnes are lined up at the Meishan port area of Ningbo-Zhoushan Port in East China’s Zhejiang province, with bridge cranes and container trucks working closely together.

Being one of the world’s busiest ports in terms of cargo throughput and container throughput, the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port has overcome multiple unfavorable factors and ensured a smooth flow of the logistics supply chain this year.

From January to November, the port saw its cargo throughput up 3.41 percent year-on-year to reach 1.16 billion tonnes and its container throughput up 7.84 percent year-on-year to hit over 31.26 million twenty-foot equivalent units.

The volume of work in the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port remains stable and increasing, which reflects the resilience and vitality of China’s economy,” said Gong Liming, general manager of Ningbo Zhoushan Port Company Limited.

‘One enterprise, One policy’

As a transportation and logistics hub, the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port has formulated supporting logistics plans for key customers while implementing 18 measures to guarantee smooth transportation and seven measures to help enterprises in need tide over difficulties, Gong said.

The port has stuck to the principle of ‘one enterprise, one policy’ to meet the needs of companies to the greatest extent,” Gong added.

To improve the handling capacity of the Ningbo-Zhoushan Port, local authorities have stepped up the infrastructure construction in Chuanshan, Meishan, and other deep-water port areas and unleashed the potential of new berths in port areas, including Meishan and Jintang.
