Sichuan's Luzhou port Q1 foreign trade up 30 pct y-o-y in container throughput

April 28, 2020


Abstract : Luzhou Port, a major port and container terminal in southwest China's Sichuan Province, saw its throughput of contrainers for foreign trade surged 30.44 percent on year in the first quarter of the year to 12,739 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs), reported Sichuan Daily recently.

BEIJING, April 28 (Xinhua) – Luzhou Port, a major port and container terminal in southwest China's Sichuan Province, saw its throughput of contrainers for foreign trade surged 30.44 percent on year in the first quarter of the year to 12,739 Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units (TEUs), reported Sichuan Daily recently.

The increase was mainly attributed to the rising imports of grain products and automobile parts during the period.

From January 1 to April 21 this year, the declared volume of imported grain in the customs at Luzhou Port amounted to 89,300 tonnes, with a year-on-year increase of 10.3 times, according to local customs.

In the past two years, Luzhou Port has become the largest transit port for imported grains in Sichuan, with declaring around 70 percent of Sichuan's imported grain products through the port. The annual imports of grains have remained stable at about 110,000 tonnes, said Luzhou customs.

Affected by the COVID-19 pandemic, contrainer throughput at Luzhou Port is likely to  decline from April to May. However, the port is taking efforts to ensure stable transition of goods in collaboration with Chongqing Port. (Edited by Jiang Feifan with Xinhua Silk Road, 346129473@qq.com)
