Two automated container berths at Qinzhou port run by Beibu Gulf Port Group are ready to start operation

The No.7 and No.8 berths, originally designed to be constructed as two 70,000 tonnes-class multi-purpose berths, which were restructured to be two 100,000 tonnes-class automatic container berths, with a design handling capacity of 1.02m teu.

The terminal project applied U-type layout, featuring advantages of high-efficiency and energy-saving, which could realize seamless connection between sea and railway transportation.

After going into operation, the automatic berths are expected to greatly improve handling capacity and the automation level of our port,said Beibu Gulf Port. 

These two berths will officially commence operation at the end of June. 

During the first five months of this year, Beibu Gulf port posted a container volume of 2.59m teu, an increase of 18.3% year-on-year. Among its major port assets of Fangcheng port, Beihai port and Qinzhou port, the latest has the strongest ability for container handling.
