WYCKOFF, N.J. -- One of the largest Chinese seaport operators announces an American partnership based in Wyckoff.

The Guangzhou Port Group is partnering with Guangzhou Port America, LLC to capitalize on the strong demand for additional origin port options for importers, exporters, third party logistics providers and ocean carriers.

"This new partnership will be a strong option for many shippers looking to diversify their selection for a full service origin port,” says John Painter, President & CEO, Guangzhou (Nansha) Port America. “The Guangzhou Port Team has a very solid reputation for operational success, paired with the only deep water port (Nansha) on the Western side of the Pearl River Delta makes us very excited and confident this new partnership will exceed our customer's expectations quickly."

In late December, 2013 Nansha Port Area hit the record of 10 million TEU (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) since its 2004 launch. Nansha Port is the major volume contributor of Guangzhou Port Group, expected to handle well over 12 million TEUs in 2015.

"Our continued growth has been an achievement in the making for many years," said Mr. Song Xiaoming, Vice President of Guangzhou Port Group. "Our new partnership reflects our commitment to the U.S. and other major markets to ensure shippers meet their logistics goals."
