Shanghai Port

Shanghai Port is located in the middle of the 18,000-kilometer-long continental coastline of China, where the Yangtze River flows into the sea. The port has an advantageous geographical location, favorable natural conditions, vast economically developed hinterlands, and complete inland distribution infrastructure and facilities. In 2010, the port handled about 650 million tons of cargo, the most in the world. The port's container throughput last year reached 29 million TEUs, surpassing the port of Singapore to become the largest container port in the world. More than 2,000 container ships depart from the port every month, en route to North America, Europe, the Mediterranean, Persian Gulf, Red Sea, Black Sea, Africa, Australia, Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia and other regions.
