As part of the effort to facilitate a smooth and efficient flow of container traffic during the peak season, Hutchison Ports YANTIAN (YANTIAN) will make the following arrangements for the gate-in of export laden containers.

1.      Effective from August 1 to September 30, 2022, YANTIAN will increase the daily gate-in quota for export laden containers to 13,000.

2.      YANTIAN has optimised the “e-Pickup” platform and the “Pre-Advice System” to improve the efficiency of the reservation system for the gate-in of export laden containers. From 06:00AM to 10:00AM every day, the system is open to the reservation for export laden containers within ETB-4 days (within four days before the expected berthing date of the vessel), and for export laden containers within ETB-7 days after 10:00AM.


From January to July this year, YANTIAN has received 14 new weekly liner calls, including America, Europe, Intra-Asia, and Australia services. YANTIAN continues to expand its intermodal service network to China’s vast hinterland. It has established 9 inland ports* and opened 26 intermodal services, extending the terminal functions to the major cargo catchment areas of the country.

Meanwhile, to meet the trend of increasing deployment of mega-vessels among the maritime industry and the growing demand of the customers, YANTIAN recently completed the berth upgrade and quay crane heightening project. On July 18, 2022, YANTIAN was proud to accommodate six 400-metre-long vessels concurrently. Hereafter, simultaneous calls of six 200,000-DWT vessels will become a new norm and a common occurrence at the quay side of YANTIAN. The enhancement has also enabled YANTIAN to be more agile and resilient to serve mega-vessels in the peak season.


* The 9 inland ports of YANTIAN are Changping, Heyuan, Heshan, Pinghu South, Longchuan and Jiangmen in Guangdong province, Ganzhou in Jiangxi province, Liling and Yueyang in Hunan province.
