Already in the second quarter of 2022, the Chinese port loaded about 9.6 thousand cargo containers compared to 7.4 thousand containers in the competing Haifa port. In the same quarter, Haifa port did about 2,750 container loadings. The data of the Israel Port Authority for October and November indicate a sharp drop in loadings in Israel's ports in general, and it is particularly noticeable in the Chinese port. In October, the Gulf port loaded only about 4,260 cargo containers, and their number dropped to about 2,900 containers in November. The decision means that its ships will end their journey at the port of Piraeus in Greece, while skipping the Gulf port and dealing it a painful blow.
