On December 29, 2021, the dedicated railway line for port clearance at Taicang Port was officially opened. This dedicated line is one of the 12 key rail-water intermodal connectivity projects on the Yangtze River trunk line, as designated by the National Development and Reform Commission. The opening of this line marks the end of Taicang Port, the largest port on the Yangtze River, operating without railway access and will enable the port to have rail-water intermodal capabilities.

Henan Kuangshan Crane manufactured a batch of container gantry cranes for Taicang Port, featuring variable frequency speed control and Siemens PLC control systems. These rail-mounted gantry cranes are equipped with a Remote Control and Monitoring System (RCMS) and operation functions. Additionally, they are fitted with anti-sway systems and container truck lifting prevention systems. Through automatic container searching and intelligent control, they achieve zeroing monitoring and automatic guiding of the spreaders, ensuring precise positioning for container handling. The rail-mounted container gantry cranes utilize a circular trolley as the lifting mechanism, adapting to complex handling positions and significantly improving the efficiency of loading and unloading containers. The use of a structural spreader with upper and lower rack designs allows for spreader interchangeability, meeting Taicang Port's requirements for handling various cargo types.

Taicang Port has established an integrated port and shipping service platform, with an integrated supervision model at the port that facilitates information sharing and real-time communication among port units, inspection centers, terminal yards, and agency companies. This has reduced the average container clearance time by 20 hours per shipment, with the process duration compressed by an average of 87.7%.

In 2021, Taicang container lines throughput exceeded 7 million TEUs for the first time. The port has maintained the highest container throughput on the Yangtze River for 12 consecutive years, the highest in Jiangsu Province for 4 consecutive years, and has risen to the 8th position nationwide. As an essential public infrastructure, the port is a cornerstone of regional economic development. Achieving an annual container throughput of over 7 million TEUs marks a new milestone in Taicang Port's capability to support the local economy.
