The country is strategically located with access to almost every country in Asia. Shanghai’s main port pushes more than 37 million containers on and off ships annually, a massive amount that tops every port in the world. Located at the mouth of the Yangtze River, the 125 berths can handle more than 2,000 container ships monthly, roughly a quarter of all of China’s outgoing shipments. Every year, this and China’s other ports are expanded and can handle more and more ships and containers. China’s domestic development has been fueled by high levels of infrastructure investment such as building roads, bridges and airports.
