Container volume at Ningbo-Zhoushan port has exceeded 20m teu in less than seven months this year, 22 days ahead of last year’s record date to hit the same level of handling.

Acting as the busiest hub port, Ningbo-Zhoushan port strengthened collaboration with shipping companies, newly opened up shipping services and reinforced empty containers supply this year, which had provided solid logistics support for Yangtze economic belt and Yangtze delta regions, said Zhejiang Haigang Group, operator of Ningbo-Zhoushan port.

Ningbo-Zhoushan port currently has a record high number of services totalling 300 calling at it.

Landbridge connections are also paying dividens and sea-rail container volume was 854,000 teu as of late July, an increase of 31.7% year-on-year. 

Early this week, China Merchants Port announced its non-public issuing of stocks towards Zhejiang Haigang Group submitted in 2021 had been approved by China Securities Regulatory Commission, and Zhejiang Haigang will become a major shareholder of China Merchants Port. 

The capital partnership between the two parties will be conducive to China Merchants Port’s development in Yangtze river delta regions and promote ports development and market expansion of Zhejiang Haigang Group.
