Top Ports Unveiled

Containerisation Internatinal unveiled their Top 100 ports listing with Shanghai 1st, Singapore 2nd and Hong Kong 3rd, just as figures from the Hong Kong Marine Department show the port handled 1.86 million TEU in August, representing a year-on-year decline of 5.9 per cent from two million TEU in August last year.

These monthly movements mirror changes during 2012 when Hong Kong volumes fell by a total of 5.2% and will be of concern to management, all too aware that Shenzen is closing in on their coveted 3rd place.
