The Importance of the Tianjin Port for Global Shipping

Tianjin Marine Services

The Tianjin Port, formerly known as the port of Tanggu, is one of the most important trade hubs in the North Chinese area, being the main maritime gateway to the giant Beijing metropolitan region. The history of the port goes back to the 1st century BC, when it was first operated during the reign of the Han Dynasty (206 BC – 220 AD). However, almost two millennia passed until the port emerged as an important economic center, coinciding with the beginning of the Manchu Qing Dynasty reign (1644 AD – 1911 AD). 

In the current day, Tianjin is the biggest port in northern China and the 8th biggest in the entire world in terms of total cargo throughput. When it comes to land surface, the port stands as the largest man-made port in mainland China. With trade routes connecting the Bohai Bay to more than 800 ports, across over 200 countries and territories, the Tianjin coastal port establishes itself as a key location for global logistics.
