Zhenzhou was located at the confluence of the Yangtze River and the Grand Canal. The city was famous as a transfer port. The role of Zhenzhou as a transfer port changed between the Northern Song dynasty and the Southern Song dynasty. In the Northern Song dynasty, its main function was to link southern China and northern China. Abundant goods were transported to Zhenzhou from different regions of the south, then transported to the Capital Kaifeng and elsewhere in the north by the Grand Canal. Although it also linked the eastern part and the western part of the south by the transportation network of the Yangtze River, this function was covered by the function of linking the south and the north. In the Southern Song dynasty, as northern China was ruled by the Jin dynasty, the main function of Zhenzhou as a transfer port changed. The linking of the eastern part and the western part of the southern Song’s territory was more important than the linking of southern China and northern China. Salt produced along the seashore of Huainan was transported to Zhenzhou, then transported to the hinterland of the Yangtze Valley. This article tries to illustrate the process of the change, and the situation and environment of Zhenzhou as a transfer port before and after the change.
