Yangtze port market survey 2010

A comprehensive market survey has just been compiled on Yangtze port expansion and renovation projects, the first time that such a survey has ever been assembled across the river's entire 2,838km navigable length.

In an effort to stimulate domestic demand, the Yangtze River Administration under China’s Ministry of Transport mobilised all the local port authorities and helped us identify these projects, detailing those ports that have secured all their funding requirements and the items on their shopping lists.

A total of 73 ports have responded to the survey, including all the major ports along the trunk line as well as important tributaries such as the Grand Canal in Zhejiang, the Huai River in Anhui and Chongming Island in Shanghai*. Their combined projects − planned, under construction or likely to be approved − involve a total value of Rmb27bn, equivalent to US$4bn. Shopping list items range from handling equipment for bulk, breakbulk, containers, ro-ro and oversize cargo, to operations management software, vessel-to-shore communications systems and other technology. Many ports have specifically expressed a wish to meet with Western suppliers.

Please contact us if you are interested in seeing a sample port response. The full report is priced at £9,600, or US$15,000. This also includes free admission for two delegates to the Yangtze Port Equipment and Technology Conference, scheduled to take place in late May in Wuhan. Senior officials from all the major Yangtze ports will be invited to the conference, thereby presenting a great opportunity to make contact with many purchasing decision-makers. Further details of the conference will be available shortly.

*The 25 terminal operators in Shanghai that have responded to the survey are small compared with Shanghai International Port Group (SIPG). Many of them are privately owned by Chinese state-owned conglomerates. They do not have current expansion plans, but some of them want to meet suppliers for future projects. All have provided contact details.
