China’s Port of Shanghai has remained the world’s busiest container port for a second year, Reuters has reported.

Container throughput at the port hit a record 30 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) this year.

Last year the port handled 29.07 million TEUs, which was boosted by international trade.

According to Reuters, the Port of Shanghai is aiming to be an influential financing and shipping hub by 2020.
