Shanghai’s seaport covers the size of 470 football pitches and handled more than 736 million tonnes of cargo in one year, making it the busiest port in the world. The port has in no small part helped China leapfrog the US and become the world’s largest trading nation.

Based at the gateway of the East China Sea, where the Yangtse River known as the Golden Waterway flows into sea, Shanghai holds a vital location for foreign trade. In fact, the annual import and export trade throughout Shanghai accounts for a quarter of China’s foreign trade in terms of value.

With Shanghai’s increasing expansion and China’s breakneck economic growth, the port is set to remain at the top of the list and keep the title of being the world largest and busiest port.
