Jingjiang Port receives first-ever Japanese cedar shipment
The first-ever shipment of Japanese cedar logs came through Jingjiang Port, China, a consignment of about 3,000cbm, according to the Jingjiang Entry-Exit Inspection and Quarantine Bureau.
Jingjiang has become China’s third-largest port in terms of log import volumes. Log imports in 2016 exceeded three million cubic metres. In 2009 log imports through the port totalled just 700,000 cubic metres. So far this year, log imports through the port have exceeded 2.2 million cubic metres and are set to reach 3.5 million cubic metre by year end.
