Guangzhou Port

Located in Guangzhou, Guangdong Province, Guangzhou Port is the largest all-purpose port in south China. Dating back to the Qin Dynasty more than 2,000 years ago, Guangzhou Port has been an important port handling China's imports and exports and served as a trade port of the “Silk Road on the Sea.” It was also one of China's busiest ports during the Ming and Qing dynasties. The port plays a very important role in China's economy, handling a range of activities including loading and discharging, storage, bonded warehousing and container cargo services. It also serves as an important economic and transport center for the Pearl River Delta region and Guangdong Province, a vital transport hub for industries located in neighboring provinces. The port handled 411 million tons of cargo in 2010. Its international maritime trade reaches more than 300 ports in more than 80 countries and regions.
