In 2012 the port had coal throughput of 5 million tonnes (mt).[1]  In 2018, the port had an overall throughput (of all materials, including coal) of 45 million tonnes.[2]

In 2019, the Weihai Port Group was acquired by the Qingdao Port Group to merged its operations and save costs.[2][3] It was part of a larger merger done by the Shandong Port Group to consolidate resources and operations from Qingdao Port, Yantai Port, Rizhao Port and the Bohai Bay Port Group.[4]

In 2020, an expansion project to add more area and capacity to the Weihai Port began construction. It is unclear whether this will add to the coal capacity as well.[5]
