YICT and the Yangjiang municipal government have signed the Yangjiang-Yantian Barge Service agreement, under which export goods from Yangjiang can be shipped to Yantian via regular barge services.
By using YICT's frequent European and North American services and efficient port services, Yangjiang's export industry now has a more economical logistics solution for shipping goods overseas.
Located in western Guangdong Province, the city of Yangjiang is 350 km from Shenzhen, and 210 nautical miles via waterway.
With rising oil and raw materials prices, the consequent increase in road transport costs has adversely affected the local export industries. In response to this, the Yangjiang municipal government is promoting the more cost-effective and environmentally friendly waterway transport - regular shuttle barge services between Yangjiang Port and Yantian Port, which provides frequent international shipping services.
According to eyefortransport, the Yangjiang municipal government will now work together with the local Customs and CIQ offices to carry out streamlined support services covering transportation, inspection, customs clearance and port operations.
