Guangzhou is a hub port in south China for trading and container transportation. After the adjustment of foreign trading container handling charges, the port’s container handling charges are still at a lower level comparing with neighboring ports such as Yantian port and Shekou port.
It is likely that more Chinese ports will increase container handling charges in 2022.
