China could have nine of the world’s 20 largest container ports by the end of the year.

The data, according to a forecasting report released by the Chinese Academy of Sciences (CAS), places Shanghai top with the most throughput capacity in 2022.

CAS added most of China’s container ports hold growing demand for shipping services, including the Ningbo-Zhoushan port, as well as ports in Qingdao and Tianjin.
