The container throughput of Chinese ports surged to 43.6 million TEU in the period of January to February 2022, rising 2.9 per cent year-on-year.

According to the latest report from the Ministry of Transport of the People’s Republic of China, the Port of Shanghai was the most productive port in China in container handling last month – processing 3,810,000 TEU, an 11.7 per cent increase over February 2021.

The Port of Dalian saw the largest increase in volumes, handling 280,000 TEU, an increase of 16.7 per cent compared to the same period last year.

The Port of Shenzhen saw a considerable decline in volumes last month, only processing 1,820,000 TEU, a 13.3 per cent decrease compared to February 2021. The city’s recent weeklong lockdown will also most likely have an impact on its March volumes.

In January 2022, a total of 24.2 million TEU passed through China’s ports, a year-on-year increase of 1.6 per cent.
