In order to analyze in depth the opportunities and challenges that the Nanjing Port faces after the 12.5m deep water channel below the Yangtze River and Nanjing has been put into operation. Firstly, by investigating the relevant data of the berths of Nanjing Port, the throughput, and the comparative analysis of changes in and out of the ship, the development and changes of Nanjing Port before and after the operation of the deep-water channel were obtained, and a qualitative analysis of the opportunities and challenges facing Nanjing Port. Through the construction of the SWOT-AHP model, an in-depth quantitative study is conducted to analyze how Nanjing Port grasps and handles the opportunities and challenges brought by the operation of the deep-water channel, and formulates related development strategies.
