Dalian: A giant 300,000 dwt class iron ore berth is set to open at Dandong Port before the end of the year. The Lioning outpost on the border with North Korea is positioning the dedicated iron ore berth as a facility to cut costs for steel mills with businesses in the northeast provinces.
With more than 30 berths Dandong has emerged rapidly in the past three years. On November 8 it celebrated passing the 100m ton mark for the first time in a calendar year. [19/11/13]
