With the recovery of the port, the business of Ningbo Zhoushan Port's iron ore and container sea-rail combined transportation business is growing. Ningbo Zhoushan Port announced on August 4 that 2.29 million tons of the railway freight volume was completed in July, a year-on-year increase of 22%, setting a new monthly record.
In response to the impact of heavy rainfall in parts of the south and the obstruction of traditional waterways and road freight, Ningbo Zhoushan Port actively communicated with Shanghai Railway Bureau Dispatching Office and Ningbo Train Depot to grab iron ore shipments and help relevant steel mills to stabilize the supply of goods. In July, the railway transport volume of iron ore was 920,000 tons, a year-on-year increase of 25.4%. At the same time, in order to meet the demand for electricity and coal in the “peak summer”, the business of “transit to railway” for coal at Ningbo Zhoushan Port has been upgraded from “daily shifts” to “2 days 3 shifts” starting in July, and coal freight has developed steadily.
In terms of container sea-rail combined transportation, Ningbo Zhoushan Port has given full play to the functions of a public service platform for sea-rail combined transportation to further stabilize the supply of the newly opened Chuanshan Port Station and attract more customers to use sea-rail combined transportation. In July, 93,500 TEUs of container sea-rail combined transportation were completed, a year-on-year increase of 29.6%
