China’s first sea-rail automated terminal starts construction

China’s first sea-rail automated terminal has started construction at Qinzhou port, Guangxi province.

The terminal will have two 100,000 tonnes-class automated container berths, with an annual design handling capacity of 1.25m teu. The berths are scheduled to come onstream in 2022.

Upon the completion of the terminal, it will become the fifth automated container terminal and the first sea-rail automated container terminal in China.

The two berths, located at Dalanping, Qinzhou port, are the major project of national western land-sea new channel’s construction, and a key project of Beibu Gulf port to promote intelligent port construction locally.

Currently, Beibu Gulf Port operates 52 container shipping routes, mainly service for domestic coastal region, southeast Asia and Northeast Asia.
