In the early spring of the southern country, at the port of the Guangxi Qinzhou Railway Container Central Station, 6 remote-controlled automated gantry cranes were installed and planned to be put into use in June. By then, this central station will become an intelligent demonstration station for remote-controlled automated loading and unloading.
In recent years, the collection and distribution system in the Beibu Gulf region of Guangxi has been gradually improved, and the ability to serve the domestic and international dual circulation has been continuously improved.
The port and railway traffic on the coast of the Beibu Gulf in Guangxi continues to increase, which has caused congestion in some railway stations and the transportation capacity has become saturated.
At the same time, some seaports do not have an inbound railway, and imported raw materials and export goods need to be turned and transported many times in the freight yard, which not only increases costs but also affects efficiency.
Since the beginning of this year, the cargo throughput of the Beibu Gulf has continued to maintain rapid growth, and higher requirements have been placed on the infrastructure of the new western land-sea corridor.
In the face of this situation, Guangxi actively integrates resources such as railways, ports, and shipping in the port area, further improves the collection and distribution system of multimodal transport with more efficient, cost reduction and efficiency enhancement, and strives to improve the supporting capacity of the new western land-sea channel point and line to open up "The last mile" helps "reach thousands of miles."
"After the opening of the third dedicated line of Fangcheng Port, it can be connected to the national road network through Nanfang Railway, Liqin Railway, etc. It is expected to transport 30 million tons of goods this year, and it will increase to 39 million tons in 2025." Fangchenggang Railway Station Station Chang Liaohui introduced that the third port dedicated line will help the rapid transportation of raw materials and products by “railway transfer”; at the same time, it will expand the sea-rail combined transportation structure to promote closer economic and trade exchanges between Yunnan and Guizhou and other western regions with domestic and foreign markets.
"In order to adapt to the increasing demand for freight, we started the construction of an automated loading building and implemented the electrification transformation project of the Qisha branch line, which can provide greater capacity support for the cargo transportation of port enterprises." Bao Guofeng, Party Secretary of Fangchenggang Railway Station According to the introduction, the station will also build 4 more strands this year, and the number of strands will increase to 19 by then, effectively alleviating the congestion of the strands of the station and further releasing the railway capacity.
Thanks to the good momentum in the construction of the new western land-sea channel, the construction of the Beibu Gulf international gateway port has accelerated in recent years.
According to Ji Yihuan, deputy general manager of the Engineering Management Department of Beibu Gulf Port Co., Ltd., Fangchenggang Yuxu Port District and Qisha Port District will newly build one 200,000-ton and two 300,000-ton specialized berths for bulk cargo. The new passing capacity is about 30 million tons.
The "main artery" of the Qinzhou Port Area's container trunk port was successfully opened up, and the two-way expansion of the 100,000-ton level in the East Channel was completed, creating conditions for the navigation of 100,000-ton container ships and opening up more ocean routes.
The start of construction of the automated container terminal in the Dalan Pingnan operation area of Qinzhou Port marked the pressing of the "accelerator key" for the construction of a smart port.
Guangxi has carried out a series of information system construction from basic support, production operations, customer service, etc., to inject strong impetus into the accelerated development of the new western land-sea channel.
Wen Furong, general manager of the Technology Department of Beibu Gulf Port Co., Ltd., said that the construction of smart gates in each port area has been completed, and the gate management, security, and customs data are fully connected.
Fangchenggang Port Area and Beihai Port Area have also built a vehicle positioning and dispatching management system based on Beidou positioning to realize real-time positioning and remote dispatch of wharf operating vehicles.
According to the person in charge of Guangxi Coastal Railway Company, in order to realize data sharing, the railway department and Guangxi Beibu Gulf International Port Group have established a joint office system to shorten the average transfer time per train by 6 hours, help reduce overall logistics costs, and improve transportation service quality.
"The continuous improvement of infrastructure hardware and software has allowed us port companies to experience a significant increase in transportation efficiency and faster cargo turnover." Zhang Yangyang, deputy general manager of Guangxi Bohai Agricultural Development Co., Ltd., introduced, since April 2020, the company's raw materials day The average loading and unloading quantity increased from 12,000 tons to 16,000 tons.
