And Huanghua Port saw a 34.46% increase in throughput as compared with 2014, with containers contributing a 59.81% increase to 501,797 TEUs.
Facing weak coal demand, fierce competition from nearby ports and more bad weather in 2015, the Group managed to achieve such good results by exploring the markets, providing customized services and improving operation efficiency. With more growth momentum brought by the strategy of coordinated development in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region and the “Belt and Road” Initiative, the Group will strive to seek more growth opportunities in 2016.
