Shenzhen is one of 3 places someone a few days ago said to keep an eye on as it is one of the 3 largest container ports, necessary for world commerce. So if this goes on lock down, it should ring one mother of an alarm bell amidst all the other alarm bells going off right now.
Here’s a list of the top 10 port cities in China. Shenzhen is listed as number 2, the 1st being Shanghai.
2. Port of Shenzhen
Located in Guangdong Province, the Port of Shenzhen connects China’s southern hinterland to pretty much the rest of the world. Known as the gateway to the Pearl River Delta and Hong Kong, the port managed 23.98 million TEUs in 2016.
The port consists of an eastern and a western port. But overall, it’s spread out over some 260km of the city’s coastline. Around 560 ships call at Shenzhen Port monthly, covering over 130 international container routes.
Its special economic zone has lured companies from far abroad, including Wal-Mart, which has its Asian headquarters there. But it’s probably more known for its ‘high-tech’ surroundings, with thousands of electronics manufacturers having set up there. It’s estimated that over 25 million people now work in the electronics sector in Shenzhen.
