The port began operation in 1991.[2]

The port has a coal terminal owned by the State Development and Investment Corporation (SDIC).[3] It has throughput capacity of 45 million tonnes per annum.[4]

Throughout 2019-2020, coal importing restrictions were tightened at the Jingtang Port as import quotas were depleting (particularly for coking coal), causing backlogs and overfilling.[5][6] Many bulk carriers were waiting to offload coal at the Jingtang Port during this period.[7] After China's bans and limits on Australian coal in 2020, most of the coal that was stranded outside the port was coming from Australia.[8]
