Container volume at Shanghai Port in 2020 was up 0.5% from the previous year to about 43.5 million TEU, recording the highest volume of containers handled at any port worldwide for the 11th consecutive year. The Yangshan Terminal also exceeded 20 million TEU for the first time, marking a new all-time high despite the COVID-19 pandemic.
Viewing the Yangshan area as an important export base complementing the Waigaoqiao area in Shanghai, NE Shanghai opened a new warehouse favorably situated 20 km from Donghai Bridge and 50 km from the Yangshan Terminal, and marked the occasion with an opening ceremony held on Monday, October 11.
The new warehouse, which mainly handles automobile parts, has a low-floor, double-ended access configuration suitable for cross-dock export operations, and also provides returnable container management and packing style conversion.
In future, NE Shanghai will be working to enhance the warehouse’s capacity to serve as an import/export base for shipments to/from Europe and the U.S., digitizing warehouse operations, and utilizing cutting-edge technology to save labor.
