The port not only greatly promotes the economic development of its city, but also drives the economic development of the surrounding area and the hinterland. Therefore, the port has a highly close relationship with its city. This paper introduces the present situation of Shanghai Port in port construction and operation, collection and distribution system construction and green port construction, and then analyzes the impact of Shanghai Port on Shanghai's economic development. Based on the relevant analysis and the actual situation of Shanghai Port, this paper puts forward some opportunities and challenges for the future development of Shanghai Port.
