#Logistics China#Shanghai ports river-sea transshipments take up 45.4% of throughput
Port of Shanghai recorded a river-sea intermodal transshipment volume of 15.27 million Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) previous year, which grew at a much faster year-on-year rate of 9.6 % than the port's container throughput growth.
These transshipments contributed to 45.4% of Shanghai's throughput, 2.6 percentage points more than in 2012. This marks Shanghai's accomplishment of meeting its goal of raising the port's river-sea transshipment proportion to 45%, a year ahead of schedule.
Shanghai's throughput was overtaken by neighbouring Ningbo-Zhoushan port and fell to the second place in 2012. It is also closely followed by Shenzhen in terms of container throughput growth. Shanghai has managed to stay as the largest container port, but is growing at a slower pace.
