Shenzen Port -China Details in Perspective
  • Has about nine container berths built around 2003 and 2004 to add to others existing before. The rapid growth of Shenzhen port, its lower labour costs and its proximity to factories in Guangdong province has put pressure on Hong Kong's terminals. Shenzhen's total sea container throughput caught up with Hong Kong's Kwai Chung port in August 2003, when each handled 1.06 million twenty-foot-equivalent units (TEUs) of goods.
  • Shenzhen has moved more goods than mainland China's busiest port of Shanghai for the second month in September 2003 upto now.
  • Yantian International Container Terminals, Chiwan Container Terminals, Shekou Container Terminals, China Merchants Port and Shenzhen Haixing(Mawan port) are the major port terminals in Shenzhen.
