The Port of Kaohsiung, Taiwan’s largest international commercial port, is advancing growth expansion at its seventh container terminal.
The port of Kaohsiung has leased Wharf Nos. S1S5 in the seventh container terminal to Evergreen Marine on a long-term basis, to service large vessels. Evergreen Marine, the port’s largest container shipping client, handled 3m teus at Kaohsiung in 2022. The company has replaced older ships with new vessels and currently operates 20,000-teu Very Large Container Ships (VLCS).
The first phase of this lease, which covers Wharf Nos. 3B5 and adjacent land, will commence normal operations on 1 May after the final delivery of necessary cargo-handling facilities in January.
