Shanghai predicts modest container growth

30 May 2012
Shanghai port has targeted a 4.1 increase in container throughput by 2015 from the 31.7m TEU recorded in 2011, according to the city’s first five-year plan for the shipping industry.
A throughput of 33m TEU by 2015 would probably be enough for the port to retain its global leader status at a time of slowing global trade.

China’s State Council also wants to enhance the capacity of inland waterways connecting Shanghai port and neighbouring areas in the Yangtze River Delta area to reduce road usage.
About 42 per cent of Shanghai port cargoes are currently shipped via waterways rather than by road or rail. This proportion is expected to rise to 45 per cent by 2015.
