K+N to support Shanghai port link

Kuehne + Nagel has signed a strategic cooperation with Jiangsu Taicang Port Authority and Shanghai Port Authority Zhenghe Terminal to promote a sea link between the Shanghai and Taicang ports.

The Port of Taicang, located at the south bank of the Yangtze River estuary near Shanghai, is considered to be a significant satellite port to Shanghai’s Yangshan port.

Kuehne + Nagel will cooperate with both port authorities to support the shuttle service which aims to reduce CO2 emissions and improve efficiency by serving as a greener alternative to trucking between Jiangsu and Shanghai.

Shao Jian Lin, director of Taicang Port Authority said: “We hope this cooperation will place a spotlight on the capabilities and on-going expansion of Taicang port, ensuring market awareness on an even greater international scale.”
