Shenzhen trumps Hong Kong in July throughput

Hong Kong: Shenzhen beat out Hong Kong to the number three spot in the global container port league last month for the first time this year by moving a record 2.13m teu compared to Hong Kong's 2.06m teu.
Last month, Shenzhen's throughput rose 40.8 per cent from July last year, according to the Shenzhen Ports Association.?Hong Kong's throughput grew 9.7 per cent, the Port Development Council said.?"It sends a clear message that if Hong Kong continues to be so much more expensive than Shenzhen, shippers will not use Hong Kong," Willy Lin Sun-mo, the chairman of the Hong Kong Shippers' Council, told the South China Morning Post.  [19/08/10]
