The container berth No.9, located at Meishan port area, is designed to accommodate 150,000 tonnes-class containerships.
In 2021, Meishan port area posted a container throughput of 6.68m teu, accounting for almost 20% of the total container handling volume of Ningbo-Zhoushan port. Container volume at Meishan port area exceeded 811,000teu in May, an increase of 31.1% year-on-year, hitting a new single-month high.
Opening up of No.9 berth could shorten berthing time for domestic vessels, which will be used for international ships soon after, said the port operator.
The No.6-No.10 berth projects at Meishan port will be constructed into the top-tier container terminals domestically, acting a key role for inland and foreign trading cargo transportation, especially for Yangtze river delta.
