Zhonggu Shipping, Ying Kou Port pen strategic cooperation

China’s Zhonggu Shipping Group Co and Ying Kou Port Group Corp have inked an agreement on Thursday on deepening cooperation in the areas of big data and logistics business.

The latest collaboration is an expansion of an earlier partnership framework entered into in April 2016 on box shipping network services.

Li Hezhong, chairman of Ying Kou Port Group, is expecting growth at Ying Kou port in 2017 to be backed by rising consumer demand at Shenyang city to the northeastern part of the port in Liaoning province.

Lu Zongjun, chairman of Zhonggu Shipping, commented that the cooperation will see the domestic shipping line enhance its logistics network and offer more direct services to clients.
