Starting from August 17, 2017, SMM has added Chongqing and Tianjin to its statistics sample of China aluminum stocks and has included stocks in Luoyang and Zhengzhou into those in Gongyi. 

SHANGHAI, Aug. 18 (SMM) – Starting from August 17, 2017, SMM has added Chongqing and Tianjin to its statistics sample of China aluminum stocks and has included stocks in Luoyang and Zhengzhou into those in Gongyi. 

Two reasons were behind the change. 

Aluminum Stocks Surge in China Seven Major Markets, SMM Says

First, China’s aluminum output grows dramatically. Aluminum producing and consumption regions are shifting from southeast China’s coastal areas toward inland areas and north China. Warehouses in traditional consumption hubs have become saturated, so aluminum ingot flows have changed. In response, the SHFE has approved three aluminum ingot delivery warehouses in Tianjin, two aluminum ingot delivery warehouses in Chongqing, two aluminum ingot delivery warehouses in Luoyang and one aluminum ingot delivery warehouse in Zhengzhou, effective from February 16, 2017.

Tianjin includes three delivery warehouses, namely Quancheng Logistics warehouse, Guochu 833 warehouse and CMST warehouse, as well as two non-delivery warehouses, namely Tianjin Taida warehouse and Yishang Trust warehouse.
