World Ports: Kaohsiung, Taiwan

Our World Ports information series, covering the major shipping ports around the world, moves across the Taiwan straight, from mainland China to the island of Taiwan. Our first port of call there is Kaohsiung, the largest harbour in Taiwan.

Kaohsiung Port is located in southern Taiwan, adjacent to Kaohsiung City, and was a natural lagoon before eventually being developed into a modern harbour over the period of several hundred years.

In 2017, the Taiwan International Ports Corporation completed the expensive expansion of the Port of Kaohsiung and added new facilities to advance both container and passenger throughput. 250 hectares of new land was recently created for the Kaohsiung Intercontinental Container Center (Phase II). The new land will accommodate numerous terminals and wharves, some of which will be able to handle container vessels of up to 22,000 TEU.
