Global Ports and Hua Xin Container Lines to develop cargo transportation between China and the Russian Far East
Operator of marine container terminals Global Ports (part of the Delo Group) and Chinese container shipping line Hua Xin Container Lines signed a memorandum of cooperation at the Eastern Economic Forum in Vladivostok on September 11, 2023. The document was signed by Liu Junhui, CEO of the Line, and Igor Pukhov, CCO of Global Ports.
The parties agreed to develop sea container transportation between Chinese ports and the Russian Far East through the terminal of Vostochnaya Stevedoring Company (VSC, located in the port of Vostochny, part of Global Ports). Hua Xin Container Lines serves import and export cargo flows between VSC and the PRC ports of Qingdao and Taicang. The line's first vessel call at VSC took place in June. From September, vessel calls are planned to be made on a weekly basis.
"Over the last year, the pool of foreign trade lines of the VSC terminal has been renewed by 85%, and today about half of the carriers working through our Far East terminal are from the PRC. I would like to appreciate Hua Xin Container Lines for their trust in Global Ports. The service of the Line will allow us together to create additional opportunities to strengthen foreign trade logistics chains between Russian and Chinese businesses," said Igor Pukhov after the signing of the agreement.
Liu Junhui emphasized: "The Far East is the main hub for import and export cargo flows between Russian and Chinese ports. We are pleased to develop international sea container transportation in this direction in partnership with one of the main container terminals in the region, the VSC, and to create new services for our customers for international deliveries". < Back to list
