58 Surabaya Throughput: 1,950,599teu


(-5.5%)


Throughput fell by 114,074teu at Indonesia’s second largest container port in 2009, representing a fall of 5.5% year-on-year. The state-controlled port authority, the Pelindo II


Corporation, which oversees the port of Surabaya (Tanjung Perak), says that full-year volumes were dented by a fall in international trade that arrived at the end of the year. However, this was mitigated by an 18% rise in domestic volumes. The main box terminal in the port, Terminal Petikemas


Surabaya (TPS) – operated by a joint venture comprising DP World and Pelindo III – handled 1,126,621teu, of which 900,262teu (79%) was international and 224,355teu (21%) was domestic throughput. For its international operations, TPS has around 1km of quayline and a 29ha yard area, sufficient for holding 30,000teu.


Pelindo III says infrastructure developments underway


at the port include the expansion of the container yard space and revitalisation of the quayline.


59 Gwangyang Throughput: 1,810,438 (0.0%)


Volumes remained virtually static year-on-year at South Korea’s second largest container port, falling far short of its stated target of 2m teu. Nonetheless, against the background of a general decline in world trade, the port managed to climb six places to 59 in the Top 100. Avoiding a throughput decline was, in fact, quite an


achievement, with the port having become increasingly reliant on completely-knocked-down cargo from shippers such as GM Daewoo, Ssangyong Motors and Samsung Electronics, which have all suffered declining demand due to the economic downturn.

A series of incentives were launched by the port to


retain and attract customers, including a Won15,000 (US$12.60) per teu payment to shipping lines. A port mileage system for shippers was also introduced to give subsidies for year-on-year increases in the numbers of full containers put through the port. The new Phase 3-2 terminal will provide capacity to


handle 1,370,000teu when completed in 2017. The port has capacity to handle 5.48m teu across its 5.1km quayline. In September last year, a rumour that Hanjin Shipping


was planning to sell its stakes in container terminals in South Korea, which includes one facility in Gwangyang, led to a 5.1% slump in its share price. The company denied the rumour and this March launched a new service call at the port on a direct service – the China Express Service – between Asia and Mexico.
