In the previous year, Sinotrans said it actively responded to China Merchants Group's “The Third Entrepreneurship Undertaking” by focusing on building the smile curve and Malik curve.

The Board proposed a final dividend of US$0,02 per share, with an annual dividend payout of US$0,04 per share, reflecting a payout ratio of 50.40%.
