THE Port of Ningbo-Zhoushan has added another dock, container berth No 9 located at Meishan port area, which is designed to handle 150,000 tonne box ships, reports Colchester's Seatrade Maritime News.
In 2021, Meishan port area posted a container throughput of 6.68 million TEU, accounting for almost 20 per cent of the box volume of Ningbo-Zhoushan port.
Container volume at Meishan port area exceeded 811,000 TEU in May, an increase of 31.1 per cent year on year, hitting a new single-month high.
Opening up of No 9 berth could shorten berthing time for domestic vessels, which will be used for international ships soon after, said the port operator.
