China’s southern port of Yantian is planning to build a 200,000-tonne class advanced automated terminal to further support local transportation hub development.

Yantian port is accelerating its port development including the automated terminal in east port area, intelligent port operation system and the application of 5G technology, said Sun Bo, chairman of Yantian Port Group.

The port group will also seek opportunities to set up marine industry development funds and establish financing and insurance industrial platforms locally.

Yantian port recorded 14.39m teu container throughput in 2018, accounting for around 55.9% of the total container volume of Shenzhen port, making it the busiest foreign trade cargo transportation hub in south China.
