Development in recent years

Since 2003, Longkou Port Group has vigorously implemented the strategy of diversifying investment entities, accelerated the transformation of port strategy, and focused on building a modern logistics center. The port’s asset scale, throughput, profits and taxes, and employee income have continued to grow rapidly, and the company’s comprehensive operational capabilities and services Ability continues to improve. In six years, the throughput has increased from 6.2 million tons to 30.4 million tons in 2008, an increase of 3.9 times; port assets have increased from 760 million yuan to 4 billion yuan, an increase of 4.3 times; and customs tariffs have increased from 200 million yuan to 25.3. 100 million yuan, an increase of 11.7 times; profits and taxes increased by 20.1 times.

Strategic Transformation

Under the modern logistics system, the competition between ports has evolved into a competition for the entire logistics chain. The means of competition mainly rely on the improvement of integrated logistics service level and efficiency. Based on this judgment, Longkou Port began to plan to use three to five years to realize the strategic transformation from traditional cargo handling and transshipment to a modern logistics center, and strive to build the "five platforms and five brands".

Five platforms

  • Information service platform.

Using information technology, the port and the port, the port and the customs, the port and the cargo owner, the port and the agency, the port and the carrier are connected to form a moderately open organic whole, providing such things as cargo owner tracking involving cargo status, cargo handover documents, Handle and manage information such as bills of lading, customs clearance, intermodal transportation, warehousing and storage conditions, ship schedule forecasts, berth usage, and freight market quotations, expand business cooperation, establish international logistics, and enable ports to function as logistics information ports. The goal of Longkou Port’s informatization construction is: internally build production, operation, and management systems, externally build logistics and trade platforms, realize the interconnection of ports, shippers, ports, shipping, finance and other logistics links, build a digital port, and provide users with information Shared and personalized services.

  • Financial service platform.

Standing at the overall height of the supply chain, providing systematic financial solutions for upstream and downstream customers, making full use of the RMB cargo collateral supervision qualification granted by major banks to Longkou Port, vigorously developing logistics banking business, and actively promoting the preparation of microfinance companies to standardize Operation, effectively controlling financial risks, linking trade, financing, and logistics businesses in the same supply chain, solving the problems of difficult and slow financing for customers, and realizing value-added logistics services.

  • Collection and distribution service platform.

Open the port’s collection and distribution channels from a strategic perspective: First, on the highway side, focus on logistics and distribution as the center to expand shipping channels and increase shipping capacity; second, on the railway side, continue to do a good job of road transshipment and railway door-to-door direct access to Qingzhou’s "dry port" Transportation; the third is to carry out in-depth operations of multi-cargo transfers, and build a multi-point support, efficient and unobstructed port collection and distribution system.

  • Port service platform.

Build a shipping service center, realize the centralized handling of port customs clearance procedures, promote the rapid flow of various elements such as finance, trade, logistics, and information, increase the speed of port customs clearance, and optimize the port service environment. Make full use of 104,000 square meters of bonded storage yards and 310,000 cubic meters of public bonded oil depots, vigorously develop the bonded business of bauxite, iron ore, petroleum coke, and oil products, and build Longkou Port into a foreign supplier in China An important bonded cargo base in the country. Longkou Port and Longkou Customs have carried out close cooperation between customs and ports. Longkou Customs has successively launched reforms in customs clearance operations such as "paperless customs clearance", "online tax payment", and "networked supervision of processing trade", allowing enterprises and ports to enjoy more efficient and convenient services . On August 4, 2009, with the full promotion of Longkou Port and Longkou Customs, Qingdao (Longkou) Customs and Dalian Customs achieved regional customs clearance, and launched the "territorial declaration, port inspection and release" and cross-customs transfer between the two customs. The model further simplifies the customs clearance procedures for enterprises in Qingdao and Dalian customs jurisdictions to import and export goods from the ports of each other's jurisdiction, reduce customs clearance costs, improve customs clearance efficiency, strengthen exchanges between Shandong Province and the three northeastern provinces, and promote sustained and rapid economic growth in the region.

  • Trade Service Platform

Give full play to the port’s advantages in integrated resources and agglomeration effects, and participate in and integrate into business activities between upstream and downstream enterprises in the port industry chain, making Longkou Port a center for the allocation of production factors of major enterprises in the northern region and a centralized trading place for physical commodities.

Five major brands

Through the establishment of a special liner business department and other service methods, the four modules of marketing, agency, production and transportation have been integrated to provide customers with professional, systematic and refined logistics services. . After six years of cultivation, Longkou Port's exports to Africa accounted for half of the country's total in 2008, making it China's largest export port to Africa. In this business, personalized service brands such as "Large Package Cement Efficiency" and "China-Africa Grocery Liner" have successively won the title of Excellent Service Brand in Shandong Province.

  • Bauxite logistics brand.

Give full play to the competitive advantage of the "differentiated strategy", establish strategic partnerships with major customers, and provide customers with customized personalized value-added services. In the first half of 2009, bauxite completed a throughput of 2.98 million tons, and the Shandong port market share reached 41%, making it the largest port for domestic bauxite imports.

  • Solid fuel logistics brand.

In terms of coal, under the strategic vision of the Shandong Provincial Party Committee and the Provincial Government to build "Marine Shandong" and develop "Marine Coal", Longkou Port and Longkou Mining Group have jointly invested in the construction of the Shandong Seaport Coal Storage and Distribution Center Project to build production and transportation. The coal transfer supply center model that integrates distribution, distribution and demand; in terms of petroleum coke, Longkou Port’s foreign trade petroleum coke imports accounted for more than 60% of Shandong’s imports in the first half of 2009, making it the largest petroleum coke import port in China. On this basis, Longkou Port will further develop its petroleum coke export business and build the largest petroleum coke distribution center in China.

  • Timber logistics brand.

Relying on the well-equipped Lingang Industrial Park, it provides customers with full tracking services from import customs clearance procedures, dock unloading, transportation to park storage, sorting, processing, and distribution; by virtue of being granted "Unlimited Exposure Supervision Quota" by China CITIC Bank The advantage of providing customers with "logistics bank" financing services to achieve a win-win situation and development for all parties involved. The timber cluster park under construction will have an annual processing capacity of 700,000 cubic meters of timber.
