During the same period, the cargo volume of Chinese ports stood at 7580 million tons, a slight decline of 0.8 per cent year-on-year.

The port of Shanghai saw the largest traffic in volumes, moving 3.79 million TEU in June, although the figure accounts for a decline of 9.5 per cent compared to the previous year.
