Shanghai still No. 1

For the thirteenth year in a row, Shanghai Port remains the world’s busiest container port despite COVID.

Shanghai’s container throughput exceeded 47.3 million TEU last year, according to a report from Xinhua.

Container throughput in July apparently rebounded in a V-shape, setting a new monthly high with 4.30 million TEU. On a daily basis, Shanghai Port set a new 24-hour record of 170,173 TEU in September, with the peak days on September 8 and 11 exceeding 160,000 and 170,000 TEU, respectively.

The port operator attributed the increased port performance to technological innovations, new regional expansion and new business development. “They include making a combination of optimizing sea-rail intermodal transport; water-to-water transfer and other measures to maintain stable industry chains and ensure supplies and smooth business for enterprises,” the report said.

The port has also opened a green transportation channel for important production and living materials.
