How port collaboration supports foreign expansion for Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei region businesses

Shen Xifeng, a 50-year-old businessman from the Xiong’an New Area, emphasized port cooperation when talking about the coordinated development of the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region over the last ten years. The port service on the doorstep has drastically shortened the time needed to export our goods,” Shen stated, alluding to the April 1, 2017, establishment of Tianjin Port Group’s service center in the 1,770-square-kilometer Xiong’an New Area, which is located around 100 kilometers southwest of Beijing. The facility was founded in 2019 with the intention of offering businesses in Xiong’an and the neighboring areas effective port and logistics services. The center was able to prevent a potential default for Shen’s company, Xiongxian Liya Packing Material Co., Ltd., last month.


The packaging material manufacturer intended to ship a container of stretch film to Le Havre, France, prior to the Lunar New Year. But the creation of the stretch film was delayed by the cold weather and a spike in demand for other goods. In the event that the container could not be delivered on schedule, the business would be vulnerable to a damaged reputation in international markets in addition to a claim for reimbursement from its foreign clients. The Xiong’an service center of Tianjin Port Group promptly coordinated shipping firms, transport operators, port terminals, and customs upon learning about the issue encountered by Liya company, thereby expediting the export procedure even further. Eventually, on February 13, as planned, the stretch film container left Tianjin Port.


Our contact (with Tianjin Port) has become much more efficient and convenient as a result of the service center. Our export items’ prompt delivery has increased consumers’ confidence in our firm and established a strong basis for growing our international operations,” Shen stated. The service center’s Zhao Shuo emphasized Liya’s story as an additional proof of Tianjin Port’s dedication to offering first-rate services for the development of Xiong’an, an area China hopes to transform into an innovative, green city and a national model of high-quality development. In a similar vein, Hebei Port Group has also put policies into place to support local businesses looking to grow abroad. According to the group’s statistics, it has established close to 20 inland ports in the Beijing, Tianjin, and Hebei region.
