Incheon Port Authority (IPA) invited members of AFSRK on Apr. 25 to a presentation session at the construction site of New Incheon Port to publicize the new port under construction. AFSRK stands for Association of Foreign Shipowners’ Representatives in Korea.

The major attendees were J. Duan, vice chairman of AFSRK and president of Sino Trans, and the representatives of major foreign shipping players in Korea including Maersk Line, the world-largest player and Wan Hai Lines which handled the largest amount of containers (114,468-teu) at Incheon in 2011, and others. They toured around the construction job site of the New Port before attending the briefing session.

Also other attendees in the briefing session were those representatives of the prospective terminal operators at the New Port in future including Shim Choung-shik, ceo and vice chairman of Sun Kwang Co., Ltd., Kim Yong-an, president of, CJ Korea Express Incheon, Park Heung-geun, senior director of container division, CJ Korea Express Incheon, plus the other representatives of the existing container terminal operators such as ICT (Incheon Container Terminal) and Hanjin E1 Container Terminal.

Kim, Choon Sun, president of IPA, said in the briefing session, “Incheon will open the Incheon New Port in future firmly entrenched as a real hub port of international trade in the Yellow Sea Rim, providing a springboard for the port to jump into a global herb.”

The first phase of Incheon New Port calls for the construction by 2014 of 1.6km piers in length at sea, and of container terminal with six berths, in the West-South off Songdo International City as the major project of IPA. When the new container terminal is completed into full commission, it will be able to accommodate container ships of up to 8,000-10,000-teu size, providing a new turning point for Incheon development with its cargo traffic growth.

IPA plans to join forces with terminal operators to strengthen marketing, and will strive to early stabilize the operation of the New Port by expanding its network with major shipping lines.
