Since the 90’s, Shanghai Port has been growing rapidly, However, there were lots of issues including inadequate water depth, water resources lacking, as well as a greater gap in terminal handling capacity. With this in mind the building of Yangshan Deepwater Port began.
Yangshan Deepwater Port Project is divided into the East China Sea Bridge and the Harbor City three main projects. Project was started in April 2002, and completed a project in 2005, including a length of 1600 meters. There are deep-water berths which can accommodate the fifth and sixth generation container ships or standard shipping, with port water area of 3,167,000 square meters and the port land area of 1,596,500 square meters.
