    When it comes to self-driving technology, a bulk of the focus is on personal transportation.

    In this article, we’ll look at China’s iron ore port inventories and what they suggest for iron ore prices. These inventories reflect the difference between demand and supply.

Sequentially, imports rose 1.2%. Port Hedland, Australia’s largest iron ore loading port, is used by major miners BHP (BHP), Hancock Prospecting, and Fortescue Metals (FSUGY).
