Major ports on the Yangtze River shipped 13.67 million TEU on the river between January and July this year, according to Chinese authorities.

TEU throughput saw an increase of 6 per cent compared to the year prior, the administration of navigational affairs on the Yangtze River under the Ministry of Transport said earlier this week.

Major ports posted a total throughput of 2.02 billion tonnes of cargo in the first seven months of this year, up 1 per cent year-on-year.

The east-west inland waterway, China’s longest river, is regarded as a key transit hub in the nation.

Ports along the river include Wuhan and Shanghai.
