The fourth phase of the Yangshan Port will initially be able to handle 4 million TEUs after it enters full operation, which will help consolidate Shanghai port's position as the world's leading port.

So far, the equipment that has been put into trial operation includes 10 bridge cranes, 40 rail-mounted gantry cranes and 50 AGVs. The project will eventually be equipped with 26 bridge cranes, 120 rail-mounted gantry cranes and 130 AGVs.
