As South Korea’s Mokpo New Port opens a new car carrier terminal in June, the port will be choosing a terminal operator through competitive bidding.
In a press statement, Mokpo regional maritime affairs and fisheries office said, “In the land area of 96,000m², the terminal will be a 30,000-tonne ship berth with a quay length of 240 m. The chosen operator will sign on a five-year contract worth an estimated KRW427 million (USD290,954) of annual rental.”
Local major logistics companies such as CJ Korea Express, Daehan Logistics, Dongbu Logistics, Sebang, and Sun Kwang participated in a pre-bid meeting on 13 May.
The office concluded that the port would consistently support improvement of the terminal by adding yards with an aim of handling 1 million vehicles per year.
All applications must be submitted by 17 June.
