Ningbo Zhoushan port's digital platform boosts sea-rail volumes 72pc

PostTime:2017-09-11 08:11:26 View:37

NINGBO Zhoushan Port saw its sea-railway intermodal volumes increase by 72 per cent over the first eight months of the year. The strong performance was in part due to the implementation of a digital platform that reveals real-time container information. Combined rail-sea freight volumes reached 25.4 million TEU over this period, while port authorities at the world's fourth busiest container port pursued platform integration, using advanced operational and management models to improve service efficiency. To do this it integrated an operations centre at port's railway station, or Beilun handling station, and brought sea and railway transport operations into the "paperless" era, reported London's Port Technology International. Cooperation among sea-rail transport businesses has been expanding to let the port take full advantage of land and sea port linkage for large customers, offer customised door to door logistics services, and speed up allocation of empty containers. Ningbo Zhoushan port said in May that it had extended a sea-railway intermodal transport line to the entire Jiangxi province. The port then implemented a digital service platform to reach new sea-railway intermodal markets from Jiangxi to Ningbo Zhoushan port.  It had used a sea-railway data-sharing platform integrated with NPRC-Jiangxi branch to allow for systematic interaction between ports, shipping companies and forwarders. Using this platform helped to regulate port operations, integrate customs clearance, lower logistics costs for customers and create favourable conditions for port sea-railway intermodal logistic channels, the port said.

 “Shunxing 6” ship, which is a container ship for cross-border transportation of domestic trade cargoes, docked at the No 6 berth of Zhenhai Port Area of Ningbo Zhoushan Port on May 25th. The ship was loaded with 106 containers (totally 2862 tons) of colloid corns. The cargoes were exited by a port in Huichun City of Yanbian Prefecture in Jilin Province, were delivered to Rajin Port in North Korea by land transport and then were shipped to Ningbo by maritime transport. This indicated that Ningbo Zhoushan Port has successfully opened the firstshipping route for cross-border transport of domestic trade containers. Domestic trade cargoes cross-border transport is a transport mode where domestic trade cargoes start shipment from a port in Chinese territory and are transported to another port in Chinese territory via overseas territory. Since Ningbo city convened the meeting for one-to-one support of counties (cities) in Yanbian prefecture, relevant person in charge of Zhenhai Port Stevedoring Branch (ZPSB) and Business Department of Ningbo Zhoushan Port Co., Ltd. rushed to Huichun city to connect the shipping route services and do all the preparatory works for the opening of the cross-border transport shipping route for domestic trade cargoes from Huichun to Ningbo.ZPSB focused on coals, timbers and grains, thoroughly exploited market, visited clients and helped Jingxin Grain Depot of Huichun Municipal Grain Bureau and a grain enterprise in Ningbo to reach grain purchase agreement. It’s expected that about 100,000 tons of colloid corns will be shipped to south by the shipping route annually. The opening of cross-border transport shipping route for domestic trade container from Huichun to Ningbo was a breakthrough for the one-on-one cooperation between Ningbo city and Yanbian city and shore up the weakness of Jinlin province where there is no seaport. The distance for the land transport of cargoes from Jilin province to Rajin Port is shortened by over 1000km compared to that from Jilin to Dalian Port. Thus, transport cost can be effective reduced and turnover time is shortened. In addition, the opening of the shipping route also enhanced Ningbo Zhoushan Port’s radiation scope and quality of the domestic trade shipping routes in North China, further improve the cargoes transport channel between north and south and enhance the positive economic interaction between Zhejiang province and the various regions in north China.

Tiaozhoumen Channel is located between Xiashi Island and Liuheng Island and is the 2nd largest maritime channel in the core port area of Ningbo Zhoushan Port. Built based on the standard for navigation of 15,000-dwt bulk cargo ships, the main channel has total length of around 22.5 nautical miles and navigation water depth of 17-20m. With the port’s rapid development in transport and production, the traffic pressure of Xiashimen Channel, which is the main channel of the core port area of Ningbo Zhoushan Port has been increased in recent years. In July 2010, Ningbo and Zhoushan city officially launched the construction of Tiaozhoumen Channel and completed construction in the following year. In Oct. 2014, Tiaozhoumen was officially approved and opened for operation and has been officially qualified for trial navigation recently. Prior to the trial navigation, the NGPC and Dalian Maritime University cooperated to carry out the project of “Research on Countermeasures for Pilotage Safety of Tiaozhoumen Channel”, collected relative data, made systematic research and investigation on the topography and hydrological characteristics and provided theoretical basis for pilot navigation. During pilotage navigation, the business department of group company, OPTB,NGPC,MICT and other units cooperated actively with each other to ensure successful completion of the pilot work.
