Tianjin Port is the largest comprehensive trading port in the north of China, boasting the largest container wharf of the country, with 75 berths, 48 of which are for ships of 10,000 tons or larger. It has established trade ties with more than 300 ports in 170 countries and regions in the world.
As a hub of railways in the north of China, Tianjin is located at the joint of the two arteries: the Beijing-Shanhaiguan Railway and the Beijing-Shanghai Railway.
The highways of the city lead to all directions. Six state highways -- Beijing-Tanggu road, Beijing-Harbin, Tianjing-Yulin, Beijing-Fuzhou, Beijing-Zibo and Beijing-Datong -- run past Tianjin, linking the city with various highways in the Northeast, most part of North China, and the provinces of Zhejiang, Jiangsu, Shandong, Guangdong and Fujian. A city road network has been built up based on the framework of three ring roads and 14 major radiating roads.
