The "two wings, six areas, three main ports" pattern of Shenzhen Port will be implemented in the future. "Two wings" refers to the east and west port groups and "six areas" refers to the Yantian and Dapeng port areas in the east and the Nanshan, Dachan Bay, Dachan Island, Xiaochan Island and Bao'an port areas in the west. The "three main ports" refers to Yantian Port, Nanshan Port and Dachan Bay Port, which focus on container transportation and reflect the core competitiveness of Shenzhen Port.
