Xiamen Port in East China's Fujian province is expected to deliver 11.1 million containers by the end of 2019, a year-on-year increase of 3 percent, according to local media reports on Dec 6.
So far, more than 1.18 million containers have been transported by ships owned by Silk Road Maritime Co, as the company offers smoother transitions, infrastructure, and services to shipping companies.
This figure represents a 13.45 percent year-on-year increase, far higher than the estimated average growth rate in Xiamen Port.
Also of note is the 50 percentage point yearly increase in the number of international transfer containers to more than 800,000 in the first 11 months of this year.
Xiamen Port operates 150 regular container shipping routes, including 100 international routes and 66 that lead to countries involved in the Belt and Road Initiative.
