A Brazilian vessel with 380-thousand tons of iron ore has berthed at a terminal at the Dalian port in northeast China.

This is the second such shipment at the port in Liaoning province in the last three months.

Zhang Wenbo, with the Dalian Ore Terminal Co. says the port expects to receive more huge vessels like the one carrying the ore shipment.

"This vessel is the second ultra-large vessel the Dalian Port has received. It has become a routine for the port to receive such big vessels,"

The 400,000-tonne vessel, Berge Everest, belongs to VALE, a mining company based in Brazil. It is nearly 14-hundred meters long, with a draft of over 21 meters.

The ore it carried will be delivered to north China's Hebei Province.

The port is also set to create a new service model, upgrading international distribution and transit services for imported goods.

The ore terminal at the Dalian Port is considered to be one of the four terminals in the country for handling massive ships like Berge Everest. It also leads the country's ports in the degree of automation and operational level.
