In terms of port traffic control, the company sent resident coordinators to major coal loading and discharging ports in China so that they could play a key role in communication and coordination for the provision of round-the-clock, one-stop service and the efficiency improvement of vessel operation. In addition, COSCO SHIPPING Bulk also strengthened vessel safety management, took preventive measures to deal with unexpected situations through ship-shore cooperation, and endeavored to overcome the impact of adverse factors such as the recurring COVID pandemic, typhoons in summer and autumn, and strong gales of the cold wave to ensure the safety of the coal transportation chain.

With the joint efforts of employees onboard and onshore, COSCO SHIPPING Bulk has mobilized 125 vessels, or 6.45 million DWT, of its own shipping capacity resource for coal transportation since October, providing steam coal shipping capacity guarantee for more than 100 major power plants nationwide and carrying over 51 million tons of steam coal in total, which contributed to the stable operation of the social economy and people’s livelihood.
