The port was founded in 1899.

Port of Dalian is owned and managed by the state-owned Dalian Port Corporation Limited. Port of Dalian handles at least 100 million in cargo throughput annually.[1]

The port handled 10.8 million tonnes of coal in 2013, down from 13.17 million in 2012. Dalian Port Corporation attributed the decline to lower demand.[2]
