Major Chinese ports add over 100 new container shipping routes

This year, China’s major sea ports are opening up more than 100 new container shipping routes. The country’s imports and exports may grow 6 percent in 2022 and some sources claim it is projected to hit a record high next year.

Recently, a cargo vessel carrying 1,000 standard containers that departed from the port of Panjang, Indonesia docked at the Dalian port in Northeast China’s Liaoning Province, marking the opening of the fourth route between Dalian and Regional Comprehensive Economic Partnership (RCEP) countries.

With annual shipping volume of above 500,000 tons, the shipping link will help boost exports of chemical and machinery products in Northeast China and imports of minerals and tropical fruits.
