The empirical research on the coordinated development of container feeder port and industrial transferAuthor(s): Chen Zhen
The industrial transfer would result in the economics of transfer destination blooming, especially obviously in the container feeder port area. The empirical analysis of Granger causality test is conducted for the dynamic equilibrium relationship between the container port throughputs and the region’s GDP based on the 2009-2013 quarterly data from Zhanjiang and Shenzhen government. The result shows that if the industrial transfer not affects well, the feeder port’s cargo mainly from the local but the port could not develop only by lightering business. The feeder port should plan the reasonable layout and conduct the strategic cooperation with the hub port to promote the industrial development.
