Chinese Ports Surpass 200 million TEUS in 2023

Chinese ports have shown robust growth in container throughput for the period between January and August 2023. The total throughput reached 203.7 million TEUs, marking a 4.8% increase compared to the same period last year. Cargo volumes also surged, rising by 8.4% year-on-year to reach 11.1 billion tons during this period.

Shanghai Port maintains its position as the busiest container port in China, handling a staggering 32 million TEUs. Ningbo & Zhoushan comes in second place with 24 million TEUs, while Shenzhen secures the third position with a throughput of 19 million TEUs.

Interestingly, Shenzhen was the only major port among the top 12 in China to experience a decline, with a -2.1% year-on-year decrease in container throughput from January to August.

The smaller ports, however, reported impressive growth figures. Yinkou led the way with a remarkable 21.7% increase in container throughput year-on-year, followed by Beibu Gulf with a 15% rise, Dalian at 14.3%, and Lianyungang with a 14.2% increase."
