In the second phase, related facilities such as operating terminals, counter yards and buildings were successfully delivered to Evergreen Shipping Company’s follow-up operating equipment for entry and use, adding value and creating volume for Kaohsiung Port.
The Seventh Container Center has built 5 deep-water terminals that can dock 24,000 TEU container ships. At the same time, it is equipped with a 700m deep and 149 hectare container yard hinterland. The storage and transportation energy can reach 4.5 million TEU/year (the long-term target is 6.5 million TEU. /Year), which has the potential to develop modern fully automated large-scale container bases.

The Kaohsiung Port Seventh Container Center Project is a major project tailored for the container transshipment hub port following the Kaohsiung Port Intercontinental Phase II project. The overall plan needs to keep pace with the times from planning, design to future operation stages. Only by breaking away from the traditional thinking framework can we break through in the fast-changing and highly competitive global shipping environment.
