Incheon Port launches service to Tacoma Port in U.S.
Wednesday, June 21, 2017, 20:51:04 Paul Yoon ckyoon7@paran.com
PS1 (Pacific South1) linking Incheon Port to include US-based Tacoma Port provides direct service to Incheon for cargoes from US Northern area without transshipment.

IPA (Incheon Port Authority) said on June 20 that it has added Tacoma Port based in the State of Washington for PS1 as one of its calling ports. This means that the number of calling ports for PS1 is increased from the existing one (Long Beach) to two.

According to IPA, container box shipments leaving Tacoma on every Tuesday evening arrive at SNCT (Sun-Kwang New Container Terminal), Incheon Newport, taking 14 sailing days to reach Incheon. ‘Hyundai Tacoma’ is slated to arrive at Incheon Newport on July 11, next month, departing from Tacoma on June 28 with scrap steels, hays and others onboard.

IPA disclosed that livestock products and fresh fruits for imports into Korea could be delivered to Metropolitan Seoul areas within next day on Wednesday after quarantine and customs clearance from arrival at Incheon.

Moreover, exhibited at retail shops of large marts, fresh livestock products and fruits can be served at the consumers’ dining tables over weekends when the food stuffs are more increasingly purchased and consumed. IPA plans to intensively promote the advantage of PS1 service.

An IPA official said: “Tacoma is the second largest port in the US in shipping that export cargoes to Korea. Its major export cargoes to Korea are animal feeds, timbers and steel scraps as mostly handled at Incheon. We look forward to Tacoma-shipped cargoes growing, bound for Incheon, which can professionally handle them with good experience.

He continued with a particular emphasis: “Since Incheon Newport was opened in 2015, as a result of our continuous marketing efforts to stabilize the PS1 service, we have paved the way for cargo inducement from the Northern part of West Coast, USA. We will pay best attention to attracting more diverse cargoes and to marketing to share the benefits of logistics cost saved with many cargo receivers at Seoul metropolitan areas.”
