Kao Ming Container Terminal Corp. (KMCT) was established on 20th September, 2007. We signed an investment contract of "Phase I of the Port of Kaohsiung Intercontinental Container Terminal Build-Operate-Transfer (BOT) Project" with Kaohsiung Harbor Bureau on 28th September, 2007. The concession period of construction and operation is fifty years, beginning from the contract signing date.
KMCT's terminal (hereafter, "the Tml No.6") has four berths (nos.108-111) with a total length is 1,500 meters and the hinterland depth is 475 meters, whereas the designed draft is 16 meters, making it the deepest terminal in Kaohsiung port. Besides, Tml No.6 is one of the few terminals in Kaohsiung port that can serve the mammoth container vessels. Tml No.6 is also very close to Kaohsiung 2nd entrance, which means vessels can save berthing time.
