The water channel nearly hundred-kilometer long to the Pacific Ocean bridges Guangzhou City up with all countries of the world and with the economically developed zone along the Pearl River delta and even farther with the inland places of Guangdong and Guangxi as well as Hunan and Hubei. In recent years, Taking containerized traffic as a new economic growth point Guangzhou Port has devoted more efforts to its development, which has greatly helped its handling of large freighters.

In 1999, it handled as many as 101,565,000 tons of goods with a net growth of 2,293 tons as compared with that of the year before, setting a record of year net growth of Chinese ports in China's mainland.
