Daishan Port in Zhoushan, East China's Zhejiang province, got off to a good start in the first quarter of this year, local media reported on April 19.
The cargo throughput of the port surged 31.47 percent year-on-year to 44.34 million metric tons from January to March.
Among the port companies at Daishan Port, Zhejiang Petroleum and Chemical Co Ltd and the Shulanghu iron ore transit base performed particularly well.
In the first three months of this year, the former delivered 13.51 million tons of cargo, a year-on-year increase of 28 percent, including 2.27 million tons of coal, 5.37 million tons of oil product and 67,500 twenty-feet equivalent units.
The Shulanghu iron ore transit base delivered 16.97 million tons of cargo during the same period, a year-on-year increase of 2.5 percent.
In addition, the port invested 170 million yuan ($26.17 million) in fixed assets from January to March, a year-on-year increase of 96.87 percent, largely due to the construction of a liquefied cargo wharf at the port, which received an investment of 126 million yuan during the period.
