Zhejiang contains some of the largest ocean berths for container ships in China. The Beilun Port, in the city of Ningbo, is capable of handling ships over 300,000 tonnes annually. Zhejiang’s second largest port, the Port of Zhoushan, is the largest petroleum transfer port in China, handling ships up to 250,000 tonnes. Northern Zhejiang is well connected to neighboring Jiangsu and Shanghai through an extensive network of highways and railways. Three double track railways connect Zhejiang’s capital city, Hangzhou, to Shanghai, Jianxi, and Ningbo. Railways in Zhejiang carry over 28 million tonnes of freight annually. Also, the world’s longest sea bridge, which opened in 2008, directly connects Ningbo and Shanghai, cutting travel time between the two cities in half. Seven airports serve Zhejiang, carrying 242,000 tonnes annually and offering commercial service to international Asian destinations.
