TPM Asia and Shenzhen Port have both seen increases over the past several years, in container volume for Shenzhen Port and participating attendees at TPM Asia. In 2011, TPM Asia successfully attracted more than 600 senior-level executives from the world's leading transportation and logistics companies to discuss issues of container shipping, including Asia- Europe, intra- Asia and trans-Pacific trade.

"More and more China ports are starting to see TPM Long Beach as the annual gathering in the United States for the international container shipping business," said Greg March, Asia Director, The Journal of Commerce.

Shenzhen Port sent a senior delegation to TPM Long Beach for the agreement signing, and opportunity to network with shippers, international ports and transportation providers. In addition, The Journal of Commerce introduced the Shenzhen Port delegation to the Port of Los Angeles and the Port of Long Beach again and representatives from other international ports, with a view to forging relationships in the future. 

TPM Asia will be held during Shenzhen Maritime Transport week, alongside CILF, the China International Logistics Fair that attracts more than 40,000 visitors, including the Shenzhen sister ports. Platinum sponsors of TPM Asia include the four Shenzhen terminals -- Yantian International Container Terminal, Shekou Container Terminal, Chiwan Container Terminal and Da Chan Bay Terminal One.
