The Ministry of Land, Transport and Maritime Affairs (MLTM) opened in Jeju a seminar from Mar. 21 through 23 on expansion of logistics information networks link of Korea-China-Japan, in which the category of logistics information service and the widening of service territory were discussed.

At the workshop the three countries agreed to early establish the logistics sharing information system now on trial of providing vessel’s arrival and departure scheduling service by more closely linking SP-IDC (Shipping & Port Internet Data Center) of Korea with LOGINK (Logistics E-Hub) of China and COLINS (Container Logistics Information System) of Japan and further to provide information on moving containers during this year.

Under the agreement, the information service ports will be Busan (Korea), Ningbo and Zhoushan (China), Yokohama, Tokyo (Japan), Gwangyang and Incheon (Korea), Yangshan Harbor in Shanghai, Guangzhou, Qingdao and Tianjin (China), and Kobe, Hakata and Shimonoseki (Japan), and will be expanded further annually to other ports.

The workshop discussed NEAL-Net (North East Asia Logistics Information Service Network) operation and the sustainable cooperation on sharing logistics information, attended by a total of 50 specialists including government officials from Korea, China and Japan, and researchers from research centers, universities plus shipping players.

The agenda of the discussion were; first, the expansion of service ports by each country; second, the joint study of sharing information on dangerous cargo; third, sharing logistics statistics; fourth, the formation of working group aimed at expanding NEAL-Net service ports to EU and ASEAN countries.

And also discussed were ‘the management plan and publicity for handling transporter for combined transport cargo,’ which should be tabled officially at the shipping conferences at a ministerial level of three governments as a follow-up in future.

At the workshop, Korea introduced the outstanding features of its on-going logistics information system together with the current status of servicing TSR using ‘container tracking device’ based on GPS (Global Positioning System) it has developed.

This move aims for Korea’s outstanding ICT (Information, Communication Technologies) to take the lead in expanding logistics information service for Korea-China-Japan and in building and servicing far-reaching logistics tracking information networks to EU and ASEAN countries.
