Initially Developed Area

Approximately 20ha of the initially developed area has been improved as the Industrial and Logistics Zone and with a target of accommodating factories and large-scale logistical facilities, the zone is advertised for sale to new and advancing business entities.

With the initially developed area formed with the Yumeshima Container Terminal and the area directly behind the Container Terminal, we aim for logistical optimization through the establishment of distribution warehouses. Furthermore, by creating more shipment activities through promoting the establishment of frontier industries, making the most of the area’s designation as a Comprehensive International Strategy Zone, we make utmost efforts toward strengthening its international logistics functions as Strategic International Container Ports.
