In January, Yantai Port, a subsidiary of Shandong Port Group, handled 35.9 million metric tons of cargo and 368,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) of containers, up 4.8 percent and 10.4 percent year-on-year, respectively, getting off to a good start in 2023.

Crude oil throughput at Yantai Port rose 7.5 percent year-on-year in January. Since the crude oil pipeline transport business of the west area of Yantai Port was put into operation, Yantai Port has given full play to the advantages of heating and insulation of the pipeline, which can transport high-condensate and high-viscosity oil products. The total pipeline transport volume has surpassed 100 million tons.

The volume of bulk cargo handled at Yantai Port in January increased by 2.8 percent year-on-year, which effectively ensured the stability and smooth operation of industrial and supply chains.

The volume of completed commercial vehicles shipped at Yantai Port in January increased by 51.5 percent year-on-year.

The port also opened a new "Yantai-Europe" wind power equipment ro-ro liner route, and further expanded the scope of ro-ro logistics business services.
