DURING the first 10 months, the Port of Shenzhen`s container throughput dropped 18.1 per cent year on year to 14.8 million TEU.
The declines are reported to be wider than other major container ports in China, according to Logistics Week.
An official from the Shenzhen government said the impact of downturn on port and logistics industry has not yet dispersed. The government will continue to push the recovery of the city`s port economy by continuing to optimise port functions, to restructure shipping routes and to offer marine fuel supply service.
