These Are The World's Biggest Shipping Hubs

• by Tyler Durden

As Statista's Katharina Buchholz details belowaccording to data from the Hong Kong Marine Department shows that ports in Asia, especially in China, are increasingly dominating the industry.

In 2005, there were still two European and one North American port in the ranking of the biggest shipping hubs in the world.

In 2021, only Rotterdam remained in the top 10 – in the bottom rank.

Asian ports have grown at a fast rate in recent years. In addition to several Chinese ports, Singapore and Busan in South Korea also make the top 10 ranking. In Malaysia, Taiwan and Thailand, completely new shipping hubs have emerged.
