Lianyungang Port resumed loading and unloading of imported alumina at the beginning of this week.
Lianyungang Port suspended alumina handling last December due to environmental restrictions. With restrictions eased, two imported alumina shipments totaling 60 kt are scheduled to arrive in late April.
Lianyungang Port has two general berths for handling imported alumina, with daily capacity of 6 kt per berth. Each berth is installed with three sets of bagging machines.
Total port charges at Lianyungang Port are approximately RMB29.9/t for 2020.
The mainstream price of imported alumina currently stands at USD225/t FOB Australia. Domestic aluminum smelters are watching closely and planning imports.
