Ningbo joins Shanghai in surpassing 30 million TEU mark

Ningbo-Zhoushan Port

Cargo and container throughput at Ningbo-Zhoushan Port has registered a year-on-year growth of 7.84 per cent in the first 11 months of 2022.

According to state media outlet Xinhua, the port saw its container throughput reach 31.26 million TEU between January and November this year.

The port is the second in China this year to exceed the 30 million TEU mark, after Shanghai secured its spot as top performing port with 39.08 million TEU handled so far.

Total cargo came at 16 billion tons at Ningbo, a 3.41 per cent increase since last year.

The results came despite the overall dip in import and export ocean shipment volume following the imposition of COVID-19 lockdowns in China.

The port recently opened a new transport service to export new energy vehicles (NEVs), becoming a new passage for NEVs via a sea-rail intermodal container transport service.

PTI ranked the busiest ports in China as part of its continued coverage of the top ports in the globe.

Previously third place in 2020, the Port of Ningbo-Zhoushan has secured its spot as the second-busiest port in China this year.
