Tianjin Lingang port to build 12 new berths

Tianjin Lingang Port Group plans to expand its port facilities this year at its Dagukou port with 12 new general cargo handling berths.

Lingang is to build twelve 100,000 tonne-class and 150,000 tonne-class multi-purpose berths and an 11 sq km bonded area. When the whole port project is completed, its handling capacity will exceed 100m tons. It will also open night navigation in the port area of Dagukou this year to improve its service quality.

Currently, Dagukou port focuses on the transportation of bulk cargo, grain, oil and liquid chemical products.


In 2018 Tianjin Lingang Port Group reported 17m tons in cargo throughput with its self-operated breakbulk berths handling 10m tons for the first time.
