A liner ship belonging to China United Lines Ltd (CULines) arrived at the third phase of the container wharf at Nansha Port on May 30, marking the official start of operations of the regular shipping line between the South China area and Taiwan.
Operated independently by CULines, the shipping line is expected to dock in Nansha every Saturday. It includes other stops, namely Shantou, Huizhou, and Yantian in Guangdong, as well as Kaohsiung and Taichung in Taiwan.
It only takes up to three days to travel from Nansha to ports in Taiwan, meeting the increasing demands in exporting cargo, such as daily necessities, furniture, home appliances, and chemical products, manufactured on the west bank of the Pearl River to Taiwan.
The operation of the new line will also lower the logistics cost between the two areas, boosting mutual development.
Nansha Port has opened a total of eight new shipping lines in Asia in 2020, further improving the international influence of the port.
