In April, the national port throughput was released, and the impact of the lockdown and control is emerging

According to data from the Ministry of Transport, from January to April, the cargo throughput of ports nationwide was 4.905 billion tons, a year-on-year increase of 0.2%, of which the completed foreign trade cargo throughput was 1.486 billion tons, a year-on-year decrease of 4.2%; the completed container throughput was 91.04 million TEU, a year-on-year increase of 1.7%. Cargo throughput and container throughput have maintained a weak year-on-year growth trend, while foreign trade cargo throughput has been on a year-on-year downward trend for three consecutive months.

From January to April, the top ten ports in the country in terms of container throughput were: Shanghai Port (1st), Ningbo Zhoushan Port (2nd), Shenzhen Port (3rd), Qingdao Port (4th), Guangzhou Port (5th), Tianjin Port (6th), Xiamen Port (7th), Suzhou Port (8th), Beibu Gulf Port (9th), and Rizhao Port (10th).

From January to April, with the high growth rate in the first quarter, Shanghai Port completed a total container throughput of 15.35 million TEU, still staying in the first place.

Shanghai has been under strict management throughout the city since April 1 due to the outbreak and has not yet been unsealed across the region. Under the double blow of factory shutdown and traffic control, the throughput of Shanghai Port has been the first to hit, with 1.08 million TEU less compared to March and a 17.2% drop compared to April last year (3.72 million TEU).

From January to April, the top ten global ports in terms of cargo throughput are Ningbo Zhoushan Port (1st), Tangshan Port (2nd), Shanghai Port (3rd), Qingdao Port (4th), Guangzhou Port (5th), Suzhou Port (6th), Rizhao Port (7th), Tianjin Port (8th), Yantai Port (9th), Taizhou Port (10th).

Ningbo Zhoushan Port completed a cargo throughput of 414 million tons, still leading in the position.

From the throughput data, in April, May and even the next few months, the biggest uncontrollable factors facing port production and operation are the pandemic and lockdown.

The major port groups that have implemented various closed-loop management for a long time have shown resilience, but the shutdown of factories and trucks for onshore transportation are not problems that port companies can solve independently.
