The port of Shanghai posted a container volume of 4.32m teu in August, hitting a new monthly record high.

The new figure exceeded the previous single month container volume record of 4.2m teu in October last year. 

In August, new port equipment at the fourth phase of Yangshan automated terminal was put into operation, while the Shanghai port empty container transportation centre also opened up, which effectively improved container handling ability of Shanghai port.
