Container Shipping

As demand for container shipping increases worldwide, so too does the need for colossal ports, unmatched in size throughout history, with the ability to process and store vast quantities of sea freight shipping containers.

Busiest Shipping Ports

Published: 11 December 2013

Imagine a port so busy it moves on average x1 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent unit) shipping container every second, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. With a mindboggling 32.53 million TEU’s shipped each year, China’s Shanghai International Port is the world’s busiest container port, with previous title holder, Singapore Port, a close runner-up at 31.65 million TEU.

To place some prospective around these figures, the entire country of New Zealand ships approximately 2.5 million TEU annually, with Australia at 6 million. Even larger economies such Germany and the UK combined fail to exceed the individual volumes of Shanghai and Singapore, at 16.3 million and 9.1 million TEU respectively.

Boasting a combined annual TEU exceeding 139.74 million and 7 of the world’s top 10 busiest ports, China’s economic growth continues at a scale never seen before.
