BEIJING, Nov. 24, 2022 /PRNewswire-AsiaNet/

Shanghai International Shipping Center has entered a new stage of comprehensive 
development featuring green transformation, digital intelligence and strong 
resilience, according to participants of the 2022 North Bund Forum.

Held in Shanghai from November 22 to 24, the forum attracted representatives 
from leading shipping and aviation enterprises and international organizations, 
as well as well-known experts, to discuss the sustainable development for the 
international shipping industry.

Shanghai Port, ranking first worldwide in container throughput for 12 
consecutive years, is staging green transformation and becoming an increasingly 
clean, energy-saving and efficient modern hub port.

Statistics showed that in Shanghai Port, the water-to-water transhipment ratio 
of containers has reached more than 50 percent, the ship-to-ship synchronous 
LNG bunkering service has achieved normal operation, and about 97.95 percent of 
the operating ships have been renovated with shore power receiving facilities.

Zhang Wei, vice mayor of Shanghai, said that Shanghai has made every effort to 
play its role as a pioneer and a demonstration leader in promoting the 
development of green shipping.

Meanwhile, digitalization is reshaping the production mode, business model, 
organizational form and operation order of Shanghai International Shipping 
Center, and expanding the radiation scope of the center.

On September 3 this year, an empty container transfer center in Shanghai Port 
was newly launched, which allows empty containers to be transported to the 
Yangtze River Delta region and ports along the Yangtze River through water, 
highway and railway, further enhancing the resource allocation capacity of 
Shanghai Port as an international shipping hub.

Yu Fulin, director of Shanghai Municipal Transportation Commission, said that 
in order to improve the resilience of the supply chain and industrial chain, 
Shanghai has worked with the Yangtze River Delta to accelerate the construction 
of a global shipping hub, improve the smooth and resilient shipping collection 
and distribution system, as well as comprehensively promote the shipping 
service and brand influence.

In the first three quarters of this year, the container throughput of Shanghai 
Port reached 34.89 million TEUs, achieving positive growth year on year and 
showing strong growth resilience.
