OceanX: Big ships & legends, live from Hong Kong
Bits and pieces

But with congestion at Asia’s second largest transhipment point, after Singapore, fast becoming a fact of daily life, terminal operators and shipping agents are calling on the local government to implement a range of policy measures, including the better rationalisation of port areas, to maintain the port’s position.
