There are two Chain Port Regions for the Indian Sub Continent (which includes Pakistan and Bangladesh) – The West Coast and the East Coast. This region has lagged behind other parts of the world in port development and many of the existing ports are heavy with legacy from the Colonial era and are disadvantaged by relatively shallow water. However, ports in this region serve a population of more than 1 billion people and with growing economies, ports in this region have a huge potential for growth. As we look at this region, it clearly subdivides into West and East with the West Coast trading direct to Europe, the Middle East and the East Coast of North America and the East Coast trading directly with South East and East Asia. West coast trade to South East and East Asia moves largely by transhipment and Colombo trade to the Americas, Europe and the Middle East from the East Coast region also largely moves by transhipment over Colombo.

The port is home to one of the most advanced container terminals in Malaysia which is operated by APMT.

INDO-CHINA

LAEMCHABANG

laemchabang_logoA very interesting port, established within the last 25 years, in that it has attracted direct callers on the main Far East-Europe trade lane despite the significant diversion from the main route and majors on some apparently excellent productivity numbers. It also attracts direct callers on the Far East – West Coast North America trade as well as on the Intra Asian trade loops.

SHENZHEN

shenzhen_logoA port complex with which the Global Institute is very familiar. Established as one of the earliest of China’s Special Economic Zones, terminals within the port of Shenzhen have led the way in innovations in marketing, productivity and near port logistics services within the China region. Shenzhen continues to lead the way in thinking about how to change and adapt to new circumstances without losing or falling into relative decline as China seeks to rebalance its economy.

XIAMEN

xiamen_logo1This port has become an important deep water facility located at the mouth of the Jiulongjiang River in Fujian Province. The first international container terminal here was opened in 1997 and operated by Hutchison Ports. As with Shenzhen, Xiamen’s growth is based around logistics and cargo services centred on a Special Economic Zone and many of the challenges now faced by Shenzhen will also have to be faced by Xiamen as the Chinese economy changes.

QINGDAO

qingdaoQingdao is an industrial port situated on the Southern approaches to the Bohai Rim Economic Area. In an earlier incarnation, it was very important as a centre for German investment (in the Colonial Era) and so it does carry with it some legacy aspects. It remains the main entry point for Shandong province and, together with Yantai, Tianjin and probably Dalian, could lay claim the Beijing as part of its hinterland.

DALIAN

dalian_logoSituated at the Northern entrance to the Bohai Rim Economic Area, Dalian often sees itself, and probably promotes itself, as the main continental Asian rival for Pusan to serve both the Chinese market and the markets of the Korean Peninsula. The port itself was founded in the late 19th century, but its legacy is now far less important than its ambitions in the region. The Dalian Port Company, which now runs the port, was itself established only in 2005. The port is the most northerly ice free port in China and has trade links via 68 international and domestic container shipping loops to approx. 300 ports around the world.

YOKOHAMA

yokohama_logoFormerly a ‘king’ of the Far Eastern trade lanes, Yokohama has been displaced by Pusan in its importance on these trades. The port has a significant history of international cooperation and sister port agreements and would appear to have ambitions to re-establish some level of regional pre-eminence. It is a legacy port with a significant history stretching back more than 150 years, but has an innovative outlook and it remains a major gateway to the Japanese market via the nearby Tokyo conurbation.

TAIWAN INTERNATIONAL PORTS COMPANY

twportA fairly recent agglomeration of Taiwan’s major ports as a response to the relative decline in the Taiwanese ports industry (The ports are still growing, but from being a regional leader just 2 decades ago, the main Taiwanese ports are now struggling to remain even in the top twenty Asian ports). The TIPC has embarked on a ‘Green Ports’ strategy and is concentrating on quality, sustainability, corporate social responsibility and environment friendly development. It consists of the ports of Kaohsiung, Keelung, Taichung and Hualien.

Indonesian Archipelago

MUARA

muaraAn interesting newish port, terminal services now by ICTSI. It was built after the Sultan paid for consultancy work by a PSA related company in the late 1990’s and has had, still retains, ambitions to attract main liner call services to go with the feeder traffic and Intra-Asian traffic that it currently handles.
