Background

The Majishan Port is the biggest transferring base of iron ore in Asia. In 2007, Baosteel (China's largest steelmaker) completed a project to double the port's capacity.[1] The port's annual designed throughput capacity is now 50 million tonnes.[2] Majishan is one of China's few ports that can receive the huge bulk ships from Brazil's mining/ore company, Vale; as such, it is a popular place for iron ore transfers.[3]
