One never knows what one will find on Youtube, and while wrapping up a Yangtze report I found the below promotional videos fro the Dalian Port.

If you have never visited a port, you need to at some point as it really is an amazing site. Besides the containers whizzing by your head, what you one witnesses while at the port is globalization at the most fundamental level.

Both videos will require about 11 minutes, so make sure the boss is out of the office ( if you are the boss, close the door)

Some of the more interesting thing on the video are:

  • Dalian will be the head of the new Eurasia continental bridge, which will only lead to more and more Korean and Japanese imports.
  • Over 150 lanes
  • 70 international container routes (300+ calls)
  • There are currently 80 berths (can hold up to a 12,000TEU Ship)
  • Current container capacity is about 2.5m TEU with 3.5m planned

If you have visited the Dalian Port, share your thoughts here on the port. Shanghai was swamped with the July 1 deadline, so it would be interesting to hear how Dalian fared.
