About Yangshan Deep-Sea Port:

Located 26 kilometers off of Shanghai's southern coast, China's leaders consider the Yangshan Deep-Sea port project very important in Shanghai's bid to become a dominant shipping logistics centre and global economic player. When the port is fully developed in 2020, it will be lined with over 50 berths capable of accommodating up to 15 million twenty foot equivalent containers.

The entire project will be completed in four phases at a total estimated cost of US$12 to $18 billion. Phases 1 and 2 have already been completed, including the Donghai Bridge which, at 32.5 kilometers and six lanes, is the second longest cross Sea Bridge in the world. The goal of the Port is to ultimately become the biggest international shipping hub in the world, facilitating China's ever growing trade with an internationally competitive and state of the art facility.
