Updated: 2021-02-12 16:12:55

On February 8, a ship called "Jiehai 666" pulled slowly out of the container terminal in the Yanka area of Jingzhou Port in a whistle, kicking off its maiden voyage on the "Jingzhou-Shanghai" container route, marking Jingzhou has built a green express shipping channel directly leading to Shanghai.

Previously containers bound for Shanghai needed to be transferred in Wuhan, which led to a long logistics period of about 10 days and high shipping cost. After the launch of the direct route, the logistics period was reduced to 7 days and the shipping cost decreased correspondingly. According to the schedule, a liner will operate on the "Jingzhou-Shanghai" route per month initially and the number of liners will increase gradually afterwards.

As the core area of downtown Jingzhou, the Yanka area of Jingzhou Port is an important transportation hub and a shipping port open to the outside in Jianghan Plain. Jingzhou Port dispatches over 140 container liners per month. To further leverage the role of the Yanka area of Jingzhou Port in serving Jingzhou and radiating the surrounding areas, the Jingzhou Municipal Bureau of Commerce has teamed up with Jingzhou Port Group Co., Ltd. and Jingzhou Branch of COSCO Shipping Lines (Wuhan) Co., Ltd., to integrate themselves into a new development pattern in which the domestic economic cycle plays a leading role while the international economic cycle remains its extension and supplement, improve services and launch the "Jingzhou-Shanghai" direct route. The route will effectively improve the port's capability of gathering goods around and inject new impetus for accelerating the integration of Jingzhou into the development of the Yangtze Economic Belt.
