Container Ship Arrives in Busan Through New Logistics Route

A container ship entered the port of Busan for the first time through a new logistics route linking China, Russia and South Korea.
 
The Busan Port Authority said the four-thousand-246-ton German ship, KARIN, entered the Port of Busan on Tuesday. 

The new route connects China’s Hunchun City in Jilin Province, Russia’s Zarubino port and South Korea’s port of Busan, using both a railroad and a sea route.
 
Cargo will be transported from Hunchun to Zarubino by train on Thursdays, where it will be loaded onto the ship KARIN, which can carry as many as 200 six-meter-long containers. Once the containers are loaded in Zarubino on Saturdays, they will be transported to Busan on following Tuesdays.
 
Hunchun is considered to be a strategic point that borders Russia and North Korea. A number of South Korean companies have made inroads there, including the Hunchun POSCO Hyundai International Logistics Complex.
 
The Busan Port Authority believes that cargo from China’s three northeastern provinces and Russia’s Primorsky Krai will be transported using the new route.
