The 11 Busiest Shipping Ports in the World

Let’s check out the action from the ocean on this list of the 11 busiest shipping ports around the world. As we may or may not be aware, the shipping industry is a major source for most if not all of the international products around the world. They handle the import and export of goods. Every country has its own advantages and products that are scarcely found or produced everywhere else. These shipping ports come into action with the continuous delivery of goods.

There are many factors to consider when we think of the busiest shipping ports, but for this list, we mainly look at TEUs or the total number of actual Twenty-foot Equivalent Units transported through the port. ( This is a unit that describes the capacity of container ships.) And, if you’re looking for a list tackling the size of shipping companies, then  check out our list of The Ocean’s 10 Biggest Shipping Companies.

You’ll find that most of these ports come from China, being the largest manufacturer and distributor of multiple products around the world. Most of their ports are among the world’s busiest. What other countries might you guess are included in this list? Let’s find out starting from the 11th:

11. Rotterdam

The largest port in Europe and previously the busiest shipping port in the world, Rotterdam has now found itself at the entrance of the list having around 11 million TEUs annually.
