The port of Tianjin, a major link in the Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei region, saw its container throughput reach 17.3 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) in 2019, a rise of 8.1 percent year-on-year, according to the Tianjin Port Group Co. Ltd.
Tianjin Port has been increasingly important in coordinated development to foster regional growth in Beijing-Tianjin-Hebei since 2015.
Since four new rail-sea freight routes were launched, Tianjin has also seen a year-on-year rise of 15.2 percent in its volume of rail-sea transport, which reached 568,000 TEUs last year.
The city also lowers freight transport costs to offer both faster and cheaper transport services.
