It is noticeable that the stock at 41 major ports have saw a continuous falling trend from 100Mt in March to 80Mt in middle June. And the imported iron ore port stock has always been the indicator of demand-supply in Chinese imported iron ore market.

However, the iron ore shipment arrived at major ports in N. China and daily offtake volume from 41 ports didn¡¯t see a significant change during March to Jun. Then what is the major reason of sharp drop in port stock? Where has the 20 Mt stock disappearing from the ports really gone?

In order to seek for deeper knowledge about the port stock and shipment arrived, as well as the demand from those steel mills that are situated nearby ports, Mysteel especially chooses Shandong province as our 1st stop of ¡°Mysteel 2015 Port Stock Due Diligence Visit¡± where three ports and three steel enterprises will be our visiting targets. The ports to be visited are the most active ports in Shandong Province even in China. Meanwhile each of the steel mills to be visited has its own typical characteristics, including different ownership, procurement strategy, fiscal performance and etc.
