Scheduled international ferry service operates from the International Ferry Terminal, including three weekly sailings for our sister port of Busan and biweekly two sailings for our friendship port of Shanghai. Ferries are able to leverage their regularly scheduled nature to offer advantages in the shipment of freight, including large items. Hot delivery service (HDS) lets customers take delivery of imported freight soon after it arrives in port while offering shipping times on par with air freight but at lower cost, making it an appealing option.

∗ HDS: Hot Delivery Service. Upon booking container cargo can be picked up swiftly on the day of the ferry's arrival.
