Affected by factors such as unrest in some areas in the world and the continuous slump of the global shipping industry after the European debt crisis and the financial crisis, the global port machinery market fluctuated wildly. Facing the severe market situation, ZPMC has actively adjusted its business idea and mode, popularized new products and systems, and achieved major breakthroughs in the automatic and bulk handling system markets such as Singapore, Mexico, Xiamen and Rizhao.
To date, the total value of ZPMC’s newly signed contracts in the port machinery market this year has reached 1.887 billion US dollars.
