Zhuhai Port Holdings Group Co., Ltd
As a wholly State-owned enterprise, Zhuhai Port Holdings Group Co., Ltd is the largest port construction company on the west bank of the Pearl River Delta.
The group is engaged in the development, construction and operation of port, land and other infrastructure. Zhuhai Port handled throughput of 130 million tons in 2017, a year-on-year rise of 15.3 percent. In the meantime, it managed container-throughput of 2.27 million 20-ft equivalent units (TEUs), up 37.3 percent from the previous year.
Zhuhai Port Holdings Group operated 67 container shipping lines in 2017 with sea-rail combined channels increasing to 15 in number. The key task of establishing the Sichuan-Guizhou-Guangdong-Southern Asia International Logistics Channel also experienced a breakthrough; construction of the first stage of Phase I of the Guizhou (Changming) International Land Port, recognized as a national demonstration project, was completed. The expansion of land-sea combined logistics channels exemplifies ambition to become a strategic Belt & Road pivot.
The 2017-21 Development Strategy projects handling capacity of Zhuhai Port (including Gaolan and Hongwan in Jinwan and Nanping districts, plus affiliated ones in Yunfu of Guangdong and Wuzhou of Guangxi Zhuang Autonomous Region) is to exceed 200 million tons by 2021, with container throughput of 5 million TEUs.
