More new services to facilitate international trade
Yantian Port's smooth logistics supply chain and fast clearance procedures have attracted many new services from shipping lines, ensuring stable and smooth supply chain and industrial chain, and further facilitating international trade.

On May 9, the first vessel of "CBX", a new service to US east coast operated by CMA CGM, called at Yantian Port. Given the international shipping landscape that the supply chain is still hampered by the pandemic, shipping lines are adjusting their service strategies, and US east coast has become a key focus since this year.
On May 21, YANTIAN welcomed the new intra-Asia service "BENGAL" operated by MSC. This weekend, PNS, the first new service in South China operated independently by SM Line, will also make its inaugural call to Yantian Port. This service provides fast delivery service for customers through its dedicated terminal in the US west coast.
From January to May this year, YANTIAN has seen 12 new services in total, covering America, Asia, Australia and other regions.
