European expansion for Port of Nansha

Port of Nansha owner Guangzhou Port Group has expanded its offices into Europe.

Port of Nansha owner Guangzhou Port Group has expanded its offices into Europe, following the successful launch of the partnership with Guangzhou Port America LLC last year. 

Johannes Nanninga, CEO of Guangzhou Port (Europe) BV said the portfolio of Guangzhou Port Group in the Pearl River Delta with the deep sea Port of Nansha in the West Pearl River Delta in particular offers very effective and competitive solutions for suppliers and cargo owners to optimise their supply chain with South and West China.  

Furthermore, the CEO said the hub of Port of Nansha for exports and imports to and from South China has a lot of opportunity to grow to its potential with the combination of Logistics Parks situated adjacent to the port. “This really makes it an exciting location to concentrate the supply chains of exporters from and importers to South and West China. Definitely in Europe this potential has not been fully recognised yet, which is one of the main missions of Guangzhou Port (Europe) BV”

Guangzhou Ports is already one of the ten busiest container ports in the world, with the Port of Nansha alone already accounting for an annual throughput of over 11 million TEU. 


“We’ve been fast growing since the opening of Port of Nansha which benefited clients particularly in West Pearl River Delta (PRD). Our new partnership refers to success last year in the US. We would like to achieve that success also in Europe and to benefit more of the Deep Sea East-West routes” Said Mr Song Xiaoming, Vice President of Guangzhou Port Group.
