Caofeidian Ore Port

Caofeidian (Chinese: ; pinyin: Cáof?idiàn) is a land reclamation-converted economic development zone in Bohai Bay located in the eponymous district of Tangshan, Hebei Province, China.[1]

It hosts a large coal and ore discharging port, which forms one of the prime ports of Northern China, namely (from South to North) Tianjin - Jing Tang - Caofedian - Qinhuangdao - YingKou - Bayuquan - Dalian).[2] Caofedian and Jingtang ports are often referred together as Tangshan port, though Tangshan is actually a large inland city away from the shore.[3]
