Vale already has a consolidated presence in the region, with the operation of Valemax ships, considered the largest bulk carriers in the world, which transported 400,000 tons of cargo to the Port of Caofeidian in September last year.

Hebei province, known for its relevance in iron and steel production, offers a strategic opportunity for Vale to expand its capabilities to supply high-quality iron ore and value-added services in northern China.

According to Zhao Zhen, executive director of Vale’s iron ore operations in China, the collaboration with the Hebei Port Group will strengthen Vale’s presence in the region and allow for the efficient supply of iron ore to the province and the entire north of the country.

The vice president of the Chinese company, Sun Wenzhong, expressed the desire to explore even more collaboration opportunities with Vale in the supply and processing of iron ore.

The Hebei Port Group has two berths capable of handling 400,000-ton ships and recorded a cargo movement of 730 million tons last year, ranking third among the country’s leading coastal port groups.

The expansion of this strategic partnership between the Hebei Port Group and Vale promises to strengthen Vale’s presence in China, in addition to boosting the local economy and promoting advances in iron and steel production.
