The lease extension contract, which covers the period from December 1, 2007 to December 31, 2018, was signed by President Jack Yen and by Ming-Hui Shieh, Director-General of the Kaohsiung Harbour Bureau at a ceremony held in Kaohsiung and attended by Government officials, senior management from other shipping companies and many prominent executives representing the Southern Taiwan business community.

This container terminal occupies over 400,000m2 of land and provides three berths (Piers 79, 80 and 81) with a total quay length of 815m. These berths are served by nine post-Panamax gantry cranes, 30 rail mounted gantry cranes and six empty container stackers.
