YICT achieves 100m teu in less than 20 years

YICT achieves 100m teu in less than 20 years

Established in 1994, ownership of YICT was last year transferred by majority shareholder HPH to the new HPH Trust group in Singapore and according to the company the accomplishment is testament to the terminal’s success due to the proactive measures it has taken to overcome challenges over the years.

With the geographical advantages of its natural deep-water berths, its state-of-the-art terminal facilities, efficient clearance procedures, and comprehensive transportation network, YICT has become a preferred port of call for mega-vessels with a capacity in excess of 10,000 teu, each of which has called at Yantian.

YICT has always taken an environmentally friendly approach to its infrastructure development and operations and was one of the first Chinese container terminal operators to deploy electric rubber-tyred gantry cranes (eRTGC) and LNG-powered container tractors. At the moment, YICT has 150 eRTGC and 280 LNG tractors.
