Tianjin Port, the largest in north China, handled 354 million tonnes — 8.5 million TEUs — in the past year, a year-on-year increase of 19.7%
When Tianjin Port opened in 1952, it was a small, shallow-water harbor capable of handling less than 700,000 tonnes of cargo a year. It has since become a deep-water port with many specialized berths.
In 2007, it handled 300 million tonnes of cargo and 7.1 million TEUs of container cargo, which put it in the sixth and 20th place in the world, respectively.
There are more than 400 ship movements at the port each month to all points of the globe.
