The fully automated container terminal at the Port of Qingdao, in east China's Shandong Province, has handled over 790,000 TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) within one year after its operation, the Qingdao Port Group said Friday.

The automated terminal was put into operation on May 11, 2017 with an average loading effciency of 26.1 containers handled by a single crane per hour. A year later, its effciency has increased to 33.1 containers, 50 percent higher than the global average.

The port is considering opening more berths for business operations.
