The Port of Ningbo, with a history of more than 1,000 years, is an ancient historical port in Zhejiang and a rapidly developing modern port in China. The cargo throughput of this commercial port was 110 million tons in 2000. In December 2014, it surpassed Busan Port to become the world's fifth largest container port. Ningbo Port is a good port with deep water, smooth flow, small wind and waves, no freezing, and less silt. It is a port for ore, crude oil and liquefied products. It is also a major Chinese port for container cross-border transportation. Ningbo Port is located on the west coast of the Pacific Ocean and the middle of the coastline of mainland China. It radiates from inside and outside to East China and the Yangtze River Delta through roads, railways, the Yangtze River, and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal. It also has trade and transportation with more than 560 overseas ports in the world.

On January 1, 2006, Ningbo Port and Zhoushan Port were formally merged into Ningbo Zhoushan PortOn September 28, 2010, Ningbo Port Co., Ltd. was listed on the Shanghai Stock Exchange.

The predecessor of Ningbo Port was Ningbo Port Authority. Ningbo Port is composed of Beilun Port Area, Zhenhai Port Area, Ningbo Port Area, Daxie Port Area, and Chuanshan Port Area. It is a multifunctional and comprehensive modern deep-water port integrating inland river port, estuary port and sea port. There are 309 productive berths, including 60 deep-water berths above 10,000 tons. The largest are the 250,000-ton crude oil terminal, the 200,000-ton-class (9 can also accommodate 300,000-ton ships) mine unloading dock, the sixth-generation international container berth and the 50,000-ton liquid chemical berth; More than 600 ports in more than 100 countries and regions are open to navigation. In March 2012, the State Council approved the opening of the Meishan Port Area of ​​Ningbo Port. In 2013, Ningbo Zhoushan Combined Port's annual cargo throughput reached 809 million tons, surpassing Shanghai Port and ranking first in the world. In 2014, Ningbo Zhoushan Port achieved a total cargo throughput of 873 million tons, firmly occupying the world's largest total cargo throughput.

Port Overview

The geographical coordinates of Ningbo Port are: 121 ° 33 ′ 24 ″ E, 29 ° 52 ′ 54 ″ N in the old port area of ​​Ningbo; 121 ° 43 ′ 00 ″ E, 29 ° 52 ′ 00 ″ N in the Zhenhai operation area; 121 ° 52 ′ 00 ″ N in the Beilun operation area ° 51 ′ 05 ″ E, 29 ° 56 ′ 8.6 ″ N. Ningbo Port is located in the middle of my country's mainland coastline, at the intersection of the north-south and the "T"-shaped structure of the Yangtze River. It has a moderate geographic location and is a well-known deep-water port in mainland China. The natural conditions of Ningbo Port are unique, and the radiation is convenient inside and outside. It directly faces East Asia and the entire Pacific Rim. The sea to Hong Kong, Kaohsiung, Busan, Osaka, and Kobe are within 1,000 nautical miles; not only can it connect to coastal ports, but also connect the Yangtze River and the Beijing-Hangzhou Grand Canal through river-sea combined transportation, and directly cover the entire East China region and the economically developed Yangtze River The basin is an ideal distribution center for ocean transportation radiation from China's coast to ports in the Americas, Oceania and South America. The water in Ningbo Port is deep and the wind and waves are small. The water depth of the approaching channel is above 18.2 meters, and ships of 250,000 tons and 300,000 tons can enter and exit the port by tide. The deep water coastline that can be developed is more than 120km, which has broad prospects for development and construction. There is the Zhoushan Islands in the north of Beilun port area as a natural barrier. The construction of docks in Beilun port area does not require the construction of breakwaters. The investment is low and the benefit is high. The wide land area behind the deep water coastline is extremely beneficial to the development of port storage, storage and coastal industries. .

Ningbo Port is a major transit and storage base for containers, ore, crude oil, and liquid chemicals in Mainland China, and a major transit and storage base for bulk cargo such as coal and grain in East China. Ningbo Port is composed of Beilun Port, Zhenhai Port, Daxie Port, Chuanshan Port, Meishan Port, Xiangshan Port, and Ningbo Old Port. A multi-functional and comprehensive modern port with small and medium berths. There are 311 productive berths, including 64 deep-water berths above 10,000 tons (33 extra-large deep-water berths ranging from 50,000 to 250,000 tons).
