Logistics Project at Humen Port, Municipal of Dongguan, Guangdong

Famed as the world’s factory, Dongguan has a world-renowned manufacturing industry and is the economic heart of Guangdong. The municipal is a leading city in terms of economic strength. However, the logistics industry in Dongguan, as compared to its vibrant manufacturing industry, is far from being developed. In the ever competitive market where modern logistics is the locomotive of economic development, and considering the fact that logistics industry has become the “third most profitable industry”, the municipal government of Dongguan decided to establish a modern logistics system, hoping to bring vitality to the local economic growth and industrial upgrade.

The Humen Port is located at the center of the urban development axis of Guangzhou, Shenzhen, and Hong Kong. It is also the center of the Pearl River Delta economic circle, locating in the estuary of the Dong Jiang River and Pearl River and with the Shiziyang Waterway in the west. With abundant supply of goods and a strong export-oriented processing industry, the municipal’s has generated over 5 million TEU of container throughput in 2004, putting the municipal at an advantageous position to develop port logistics.

To Dongguan, developing the bonded logistics industry in Humen Port relates to the future economic competitiveness of the municipal, and is an important strategic deployment in its sustainable development. To realize a transition from a "manufacturing base" to a "modern manufacturing center", and considering the fact that the existing bonded logistics industry cannot meet the needs of market, local government decided apply for the construction of a national Type B bonded centre, so as to promote modern logistics and further improve local environment for investment and international trade. With this requirement, the municipal government began to identify a project planning expert so that the expected outcome of the Humen Port development can be achieved.
