Xuwen Port in Zhanjiang, South China's Guangdong province, the world's largest roll-on roll-off passenger and freight port, went into service on Sept 26.
The port features 16 5,000-ton ro-ro passenger and freight berths and is equipped with such facilities as bulwarks, shipping routes, dangerous goods test stations and an integrated traffic hub.
The port is expected to handle as many as 3.2 million vehicles and 17.28 million passengers annually.
It is intended to be built into a smart port integrating easy berthing, quick transfers, intelligent information management and comprehensive vehicle checking.
An internationally leading demonstrative passenger and freight ro-ro port, the multi-function Xuwen Port will shorten the distance between Xuwen and Haikou, capital of South China's Hainan province.
What's more, it will play a role in promoting high-quality development of the Qiongzhou Strait economic belt.
The port was designed, constructed and invested and will be operated by China Communications Construction Company Ltd. (CCCC).
