1.3.Condition of Terminals
1.3.1.Berth W17-W18
With a total length of 526M and water depth alongside of -12M to -13M, these berths are aligned on the same normal line for accommodating the 1,000 - 5,000TEU container ships.

2.Wharf Deepening and Strengthening Project
To meet the global trend of mega ship era and its cascading effect, we invest for a modernized Keelung Port. The deepening and strengthening modification of Berth W22 and W23 is completed underway which offer a depth alongside of -15.0M for accommodating the 8,000TEU container vessels. Three brand new 18 row gantry cranes which add height and outreach plus four brand new rail mounted gantry cranes will soon be introduced. Handling capacity will hence be increased to 4,075TEU in five layers.
3.Multi-national Cargo Consolidation(MCC)
For vessel operators and freight forwarders engaging MCC in Keelung, we provide logistics facilities needed for unloading, delivering, stuffing and un-stuffing. We will soon build a common warehouse in the port area. Hence customers no longer need to spend extra haulage and labor cost to/from hinterland depots. Stuffing and un-stuffing containers on-dock will be the new norm. With improved infrastructure and customized supply chain solution, we foresee MCC handling in Keelung Port will be lifted to another level.

4.Customer-Focus Quality Service
4.1.Container Ship Preferential Tariff Agreement
We’ve been negotiating Container Ship Preferential Tariff Agreement with various shipping lines since 1999. The guideline of such time-volume contract is “the more the volume, the lower the tariff”. Same guideline also applies to the following:

Loading and discharging of above can both apply preferential tariff.

We provide seamless service and preferential tariff for the above.

Contracted customers are always privileged with “berthing priority”.
