Development and Operation

Gwangyang Port's Container Terminal has an advantageous site condition. The adjacent island, Myodo, serves as a natural breakwater and allows the terminal to facilitate cargo working over 360 days a year. This is the only domestic terminal where mega-scale container ships as well as maximum 300,000 ton’s ships can enter and departure thanks to its deep water level (16m). Furthermore, the terminal equips with 100% on dock system and a high-tech crane that enables cargo working for mega carrier level (10,000 TEU or higher) vessels. In addition, its operation based on the advanced IT and the most optimal logistics services by automatic carry in/out service are the envy of the world.
