NANJING, Feb. 29 (Xinhua) -- Xuzhou Construction Machinery Group (XCMG), a leading Chinese machinery manufacturer, has managed to complete overseas deliveries despite difficulties caused by the novel coronavirus outbreak, the company said Saturday.

A fleet of XCMG products, including cranes, excavators and loaders, have been sent for offshore shipping to countries along the Belt and Road, the company said.

"We have coordinated our entire supply chain to ensure production across all factories. So far, there have been no delays in the delivery of orders since the outbreak of the coronavirus," said Liu Jiansen, general manager of XCMG Import and Export Company.

The company has assisted 265 manufacturing and logistics companies in its supply chain in the east China city of Xuzhou, Jiangsu Province, where the company is headquartered, to resume production, which makes up over 90 percent of the company's major suppliers.

The company has provided 466 million yuan (about 66.7 million U.S. dollars) worth of special credit support to industry chain partners.

XCMG is a multi-national heavy machinery manufacturing company with products exporting to more than 183 countries and regions worldwide.
