Shanghai port shows recovery signs after latest pandemic lockdown

The port of Shanghai handled more than 3.08 million TEU in April, which represents 82.4% of the box volumes recorded in April 2021.

This is a sign of recovery, according to China's Ministry of Transport, which said in a press briefing that operations in the world's busiest container port are gradually returning to normal, after the serious disruptions caused by Covid-19 lockdown measures.

During the first four months of the year, the port has moved 15.35 million TEU, which translates to a slight year on year 1.8% growth, according to Li Guoping, an official with the country's Ministry of Transport, who noted that "the port has seen its container throughput continue to recover this month."
