Yeosu Gwangyang port is located on the south-central coast of South Korea, about 100km away from downtown Busan. It is the country’s No.1 port for import and export and a logistics hub for Northeast Asia, connecting 122 ports worldwide with an annual cargo throughput of 290 million tons.

The port plays a significant role in the country’s short-sea trades with Northern China and Japan, with a privileged location along the main trade routes linking Asia, North America and Europe. There are two national and four regional industrial complexes located near the port.  

Surrounding ridges and islands form a natural breakwater for the port, which can maintain constant water temperature and better secure large container ships in the harbor.

Having 103 berths, 12 of which are deep-sea container berths, and a 20meter-deep natural approaching channel, the port permits access for 20,000-TEU container ships and 400,000-DWT vessels. With a well-developed land-sea-air transport network, the port allows efficient cargo delivery throughout the country.

The port’s container terminal extends 3.7 kilometers with a 600meter-deep water area. It provides additional on-dock areas for empty container storage and Maintenance & Repair (M&R) activities, which enables substantial cost savings for users. It also offers various incentives to shipping companies, giving vessels full exemptions from port entry and departure fees, berthing and anchorage fees, up to 30 days free cargo storage and more.

In 2018, Yeosu Gwangyang port handled 2.41 million TEUs of containers and 333 million tons of cargo, which ranked it second in the country after Busan port and 11th in the world.
