Incheon Newport sees large boxships calling grow 60%

Incheon Newport located at Songdo, Incheon has apparently put its operation on the right track. Starting with SNCT (Sunkwang Newport Container Terminal) opened in June2015, HJIT (Hanjin Incheon Terminal) opened in 2016 is likely to have the increased regional impact on creation of economic added-value by inducing more cargoes into the port.

The opening and operation of Incheon Newport have led to growth in the number of calls of large-sized boxships above 5,000teu at two box terminals by 60.6%, it is tallied.

According to IPA (Incheon Port Authority headed by President B. H. Nam), a total of 1,022 containerships sized above 5,000teu have called at Incheon Newport to the end of Aug. this year. Of these, the large containerships above 5,000teu stood at 53 (up 33), an increase of 60.6% from corresponding period of last year.

Before the Newport opened, the fact was that the largest containership that could enter it was merely 4,000teu class, restricting the IPA’s efforts in inducement of larger ships.

The largest containership that has called at Incheon Port was ‘OOCL Utah’ under G6 Alliance. She is deployed in long-haul service on the route of Incheon-West Coast of U.S. Incheon Newport is always able to accommodate large containerships as equipped with sufficient wharf facilities and induce more new container long-haul services at any time.

Also, the container volume Incheon Newport handled this year till the end of Aug. jumped by 94.3% to 947,000teu on the corresponding period of last year thanks to its expanded container terminal facilities together with the increased number of ships calling at the Newport. The said container traffic volume accounts for 47.7% of Incheon Port’s total containers handled during the period.
