On the morning of May 27, Guangxi Beibu Gulf International Fresh Cold Chain Park (Phase I, hereinafter referred to as the Park) officially opened for operation in Fangchenggang City.
The park has a total investment of 4 billion RMB and a total area of 120hectares. It will be constructed in three phases. The park focuses on the logistics, processing and trade of agricultural products and cold chain food, and has six advantageous functions - warehousing, trade, distribution, processing, multimodal transport, and supply chain finance.
The first phase covers an area of 40hectares, with a total investment of 1.262 billion RMB and a cold storage capacity of 200,000 tons. After the third phase of the project is completed and put into production, it will form annual fresh food storage and processing capacity of over 600,000 tons.
The Park has obvious advantages in location, and all ports in Fangcheng Port can be reached within a radius of 15 kilometers. Relying on the aquatic product resources of the fishing port economic zone in the coastal cities of the Pan Beibu Gulf and the two-way cold chain channel and port advantages of Fangchenggang, the park can connect the vast markets of ASEAN, Europe and China to build a modern large-scale cold chain logistics comprehensive service platform.
On the opening day, the park signed on-site contracts with 30 companies. The cooperation projects involved cold chain transportation, aquaculture and fishing, import and export trade, cold chain special trains, and cold chain processing, covering processing centers, normal temperature warehouses, cold storage, exhibition and trading centers. As of that day, the park's contracted area has reached 90%, with a total contracted leased area of 80,000 square meters, and an estimated annual inbound cargo volume of 300,000 tons.
