BCNT attracts feeders

According to CEO Peter Slootweg, the new service sends “an important message” that the terminal, originally designed to handle the world’s largest vessels with call sizes of 2000+ moves, can also attract feeder services operating smaller vessels requiring around 200+ moves.

With an initial capacity of 1.8m teu, which it hopes to increase to 2.7m teu by next year (2014), the Korean facility is the first vertical-automated terminal in Asia with a quay capacity to berth four of the world’s largest container vessels simultaneously.
