Container throughput was so brisk that it marked double-digit improvements at both coastal and inland river ports, with the former surging 10.2% to 17,880,800 TEUs and the latter, 17% to 2,398,100 TEUs. 

In the first half (January-June), total throughput was 114,638,400 TEUs, which rose 8.8%. Coastal and inland river ports both recorded all-time highs for the month under review, with the former processing 11,668,600 TEUs, up 7.8%, and the latter, 12,969,900 TEUs, up 16.8%. 

Looking at container movement to and from China in the fix months by trade route, shipments to and from Lianyungang waned 7.2%, but those to and from other ports were favorable across the board. In particular, notable increases were registered in those to and from Shanghai, Ningbo-Zhoushan, Guangzhou, Suzhou and Foshan, which surged 9.6%, 14.4%, 11.7%, 11.5% and 31.7%, respectively.
