OVERVIEW: The port handles oil, dry bulk, timber, steel, cement and containers.
Much of the imported iron ore arrives in vessels up to 100,000 d.w.t. At Beilun Harbour, half of the cargo is unloaded, in order to reduce the vessel's draft, for eventual discharge at Shanghai's Baoshan Steel Mill's private berth.
