  • On 29th June, during the Humen Port Investment Promotion Conference held in Hong Kong, Humen Port signed a letter of intent to cooperate in opening cargo shipping lines to Japan with COSCO Pan-Asia.

    It is estimated that after the direct route is opened, the combined cost of each standard cargo container imported or exported from Humen Port will save 1200 RMB over shipping from Shenzhen Port, and 3200 RMB over shipping from Hong Kong by land.

    Humen Port is also in discussion with several barge companies to build a fast track route between Dongguan and Hong Kong.
