Top 100 Ports 2017 report cover

Lloyd's List Top 100 Ports Ranking 

Find out how the world's leading ports compare against each other.

 


The One Hundred Container Ports ranked by Lloyd’s List handled 555.6m teu in 2016, up 2.2%, or slightly over 12m teu, year-on-year.

 

Volume growth in 2017 was fragmented; fortunes fluctuated between regions and countries, but one common theme remained – China is the main growth engine.

 

Total volumes may have risen moderately yet this was not to say that there were not any success stories over the course of the 12 months, as indeed there were. This helped to mask some dire performances elsewhere.
