History[edit]

Layout[edit]

The port of Jiaxing is located on the mouth of the Qiantang River, at the start of Hangzhou Bay. A large number of inland waterways, including the Grand Canal criss-cross Jiaxing prefecture as well. As of 2012 it had 36 berths, 26 capable of handling ships over 10,000 DWT, and 10 berths for 1,000-ton vessels.[1]

  • Zhapu Port Area(乍浦港区), just to the east of the Hangzhou Bay Sea Bridge is the main port area.
  • Dushan Port Area (独山港区)
  • Haiyan Port Area (海盐港区)

The Jiaxing Inland Port is located at several areas alongside the many waterways of the region, and is administered independently.
