The fourth phase of the port will start trial operation on Dec. 10. As the core of the Shanghai International Shipping Center, the automated port is the largest in the world in terms of both scale and size. The fourth phase has seven berths along with a 2.35-kilometer quayside. After it is put into operation, the port will have a handling capacity of four million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) per year and container volume will eventually be increased to 6.3 million TEUs per year.
