Xinghua’s strategic location on the Changjiang (Yangtze) River Delta is a key competitive edge. At 6,380 kilometres long, the Changjiang River is Asia’s longest river and the world’s third longest river. It is the arterial waterway for a delta hinterland comprising three provinces, 22 major cities including Shanghai, and two Special Administrative Regions (SARs).

Services & Solutions

PROVEN REPUTATION FOR RELIABILITY AND SAFETY

The Group operates two ports: the highly successful Changshu Xinghua Port Co., Ltd (CXP) and the adjacent Changshu Changjiang International Port Co., Ltd (CCIP), a smaller port which was acquired by Xinghua in early 2014. Together, they provide comprehensive port and logistics solutions in partnership with international and domestic shipping companies, cargo owners and receivers.

The ports are renowned for their high integrity in management, effective port management systems and efficient infrastructure. They have a combined area of 1,360,307 sq metres and a total berth length of approximately 2.57 km.The water depth of CXP is 13.3 metres and that of CCIP is 13.0 metres. Together, they have a total of 16 multi-purpose berths, 18 shore cranes, two quay cranes, a mobile harbour crane, 21 warehouses and stack yards with a total area of approximately 782,403 sq metres.

Changshu Xinghua Port Co., Ltd (CXP)

CXP is jointly developed and owned with the highly regarded Chinese government-led Jiangsu Changshu Economic Development Group as well as Singaporean investors. It has rapidly grown into a key regional hub for high-value finished steel products and project equipment as well as import cargoes such as pulp & paper and logs for robust domestic markets.

Since its humble beginnings in 1997, it has established a reputation for safety and reliability in cargo handling. It is currently counted among China’s top 10 Class One international river ports. In 2016, CXP was ranked in an independent report by Frost & Sullivan:

  • 2nd in throughput volume and revenue of pulp cargo in China
  • 5th in throughput volume and revenue of logs cargo in China
  • 23rd in total throughput volume in the Changjiang River Delta Region

Changshu Changjiang International Port Co Ltd (CCIP)

CCIP has proven to be a perfect complement to the larger CXP next door. The two ports in combination offer a synergistic and complete suite of logistics hubbing solutions. The smaller CCIP, with its berths in an F-shaped configuration, handles an expanding itinerary of cargoes including pulp and paper, steel, logs, project equipment and other general cargo.

The adjacent CCIP complements the larger CXP with synergies that include efficient berth allocation of smaller vessels and river barges, saving time and costs for cargo and vessel owners.
