The cargo throughput of Liuheng port area, a core area of Ningbo Zhoushan Port, registered a record 87.06 million metric tons in 2021, a year-on-year increase of 6.09 percent.

The port area's cargo throughput was mainly attributed to the coal transit terminal managed by Zhejiang Energy Port Operation and Management Co Ltd, ore terminal by Zhoushan Wugang Wharf Co Ltd, as well as the oil product terminals by Zhoushan Jinrun Petroleum Transfer Co Ltd and Haigang Zhong'ao Energy Co Ltd.

Currently, the infrastructure construction at Liuheng port area has been accelerated as the first phase of the Shuangyumen channel has commenced.

With the industrial layout of liquefied natural gas and the improvement of 300,000-ton Tiaozhoumen and Shuangyumen channels, the deepwater shoreline resources at Liuheng port area will be further explored and Liuheng port area is aiming to achieve 100 million tons of throughput per year.

Ningbo Zhoushan Port handled 1.224 billion tons of cargo in 2021, up 4.4 percent year-on-year and topping the global rankings for the 13th straight year.
