The largest port in Northern China and the main maritime gateway to Beijing, The Port of Tianjin is one of the primary logistics and shipping hub of North China. It is located on the western shore of the Bohai Bay, on the estuary of the Haihe River, 170 km southeast of Beijing and 60 km east of Tianjin city. The largest man-made port in mainland China, and one of the largest in the world, it was the ninth-largest container port in the world in 2018. In 2019, the port reported total container throughput of 15.97 million TEUs, an increase of 6.2 percent over 2018. In 2019, the port traded with more than 600 ports in some 180 countries and territories around the world. It was served by over 115 regular container lines, including all of the world’s top 20 liners.

The Port of Tianjin is part of the Binhai New Area district of Tianjin Municipality, the main special economic zone of northern China. It lies directly east of the Tianjin Economic-Technological Development Area (TEDA), one of China’s first national economic and technological development zones. After years of development, TEDA has expanded from the original 33 square kilometers to more than 400 square kilometers, and has formed a new development pattern of “one zone with ten parks” by developing ten parks of clear industrial orientation and development direction. TEDA was once rated as “China’s Most Dynamic Region” by the United Nations Industrial Development Organization (UNIDO).
