From January to February, the Port of Tianjin, traditional gateway to Beijing, handled 1.77 million TEU, a 5.15-percent gain year-over-year, Xinhua reports.
The port's overall throughput increased 5.11 per cent to 69.22 million tonnes.
Last year, Tianjin registered a throughput of 450 million tonnes, making it the fourth largest port in the world.
This year, in order to meet its throughput target of 470 million tonnes, Tianjin will launch series of measures to secure and expand its cargo sources, looking to developing more foreign and domestic cargo, and strengthen cooperation with inland cities to increase intermodal links.
