The world's busiest port is contested by several ports around the world, as there is as yet no standardised means of evaluating port performance and traffic. For the past decade, the distinction has been claimed by both the Port of Rotterdam and the Port of Singapore. The former based its measurement on cargo tonnage handled (total weight of goods loaded and discharged), while the latter ranked in terms of shipping tonnage handled (total volume of ships handled). Since 2005, the Port of Shanghai has exceeded both ports to take the title in terms of total cargo tonnage.

Contractors reclaimed 26 million cu meters of land in islands in the Qiqu archipelago, tucked in the mouth of Hangzhou Bay, to build what will be the worlds largest container port (ENR 8/23/04 p. 26). It is connected to the mainland by Donghai Bridge, a 32-kilometer-long causeway that includes five cable-stayed spans allowing ship passage.
