February 18, Yangtze Daily reporter learned from the website of the Ministry of Transport, the Ministry of Transport released the 2021 annual container throughput data of China’s ports.In 2021, the container throughput of Wuhan Port ranked 20th among all ports in China, with the second fastest growth rate and the first time successfully ranked among the top 20 of the annual container throughput of All ports in China.In 2021, China’s ports completed a container throughput of 280 million TEUs, up 7 percent year on year.Among them, Shanghai Port, Ningbo Zhoushan port and Shenzhen port rank top three.Suzhou port ranked first in terms of growth rate, with a year-on-year growth of 29%.Wuhan Port completed 2.48 million TEUs in 2021, with a year-on-year increase of 26.1%, ranking second among major ports in China.Among the top 20 ports in China, there are 4 inland ports, namely Suzhou port, Foshan port, Nanjing port and Wuhan port.The top 20 ports in China are mainly seaport-type ports in Yangtze River Delta, Pearl River Delta, Bohai Rim and other regions, as well as inland river ports equivalent to the standard of ports in adjacent regions. Wuhan port is the only inland port in the true sense of the finalists.The construction of hub port is the core element of wuhan shipping center construction, and the scale of testing hub port is container throughput.Container throughput, is a city external economic development “barometer”.It took 14 years for wuhan port container transport to surpass 500,000 TEU in 2009, starting in 1996 with only 16,300 teU at that time.In 2014, the container throughput of Wuhan port exceeded 1 million TEUs.In 2019, The container throughput of Wuhan Port reached 1.69 million TEUs, ranking 25th in China and 8th in growth rate.In 2020, The container throughput of Wuhan Port was 1.933 million TEUS, ranking the 23rd among all ports in China and the fifth in terms of growth rate.At the end of the 11th Five-Year Plan period, the container throughput of Wuhan port was more than 500,000 TEU, which exceeded 1 million TEU during the 12th Five-year Plan period and approached 2 million TEU at the end of the 13th Five-Year Plan period, doubling every five years. The main reason for the double growth is the result of the accumulated development of Wuhan port over the years.In particular, in 2021, centering on building a hub port in central China and realizing the target of 5 million TEU throughput as soon as possible, Wuhan New Port Committee and Hubei Port Group will formulate a scientific tracking and supervision mechanism and intensify daily efforts to ensure that the annual target of container throughput is implemented quarterly, monthly and weekly.Promote 5 jianghai direct container ships to be put into operation, realize the opening of yangluo International Port water-railway combined transport Phase ii project, and open the “last kilometer” of Wuhan water-railway combined transport;Focus on creating important nodes of domestic cycle and strategic links of domestic and international double cycle,In succession, wuhan has opened the direct air route from Wuhan to South Korea, the direct air route from Wuhan to Ningbo Zhoushan Port, the direct air route from Wuhan to Jining Port, the direct air route from Wuhan to Yingkou Port, the container air route from Wuhan to Yichang, the container express air route from Wuhan to Nanjing, and the bus service from Wuhan to Huangshi.China has promoted the signing of the cooperation project on River-Sea Transport belt and Road Connectivity between Hubei Province of China and Kansai Of Japan, and created a new international logistics corridor spanning East Asia, Central Asia and Europe.The container throughput of Wuhan Port has been listed among the top 20 ports in China for the first time this year, indicating that Wuhan port’s radiation power and influence in the basin have been significantly enhanced, and its hub status has been increasingly consolidated.Built in order to speed up the central hub port and realize the goal of throughput of 5 million teu to lay a solid foundation, to implement the countries along the Yangtze river economic belt, area and other major strategic and new stage “, the new idea, the new pattern of “development, the implementation of hubei province” play a role of a main lead the gripper, high level building wuhan Yangtze river shipping center “work deployment,It is of great significance to realize the goal of building Wuhan into “five centers” and an international metropolis.(Changjiang Daily reporter Wang Wenhan Correspondent Li Yun)
