Jingtang Port is a deep-water international seaport on the coast of Tangshan Municipality, Hebei, People's Republic of China. It is part of the Port of Tangshan, which also includes the Caofeidian and Fengnan ports.
The port is situated on the north coast of Bohai gulf.
The port began operation in 1991.
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. Many bulk carriers were waiting to offload coal at the Jingtang Port during this period. 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.
