According to Yonhap News,

(INCHEON=Yonhap News) A new international frieght business center will be constructed in the Second Aam Logistic Complex, located in the hinterland of Incheon's South Port.

On January 24, the Incheon Port Authority signed a memorandum of understanding (MoU) on the construction of the center with the Incheon City Freight Truck Business Association.

Based on the MoU, the port authority will establish a basic plan and commission a feasibility study on the project, for which the expenses will be divided equally between the port authority and the association.

Suffering from a chronic shortage of parking space, Incheon currently only has 18 percent of the necessary parking spaces for 5-ton and larger trucks.

As a result, the flow of logistics is worsening, and concerns are rising over issues of safety.

The new center will be built on a site covering about 127,000 square meters of land in the 2nd Aam Logistics Complex, complete with 670 spaces for freight trucks and an area for some 100 freight companies, currently scattered across the city, to move in.

By doing so, the companies will be able to reduce the interval between trucks, and benefit from one-stop logistics services.

The center will also feature convenience facilities such as repair shops and restaurants, all designed for freight truck drivers.

The port authority plans to complete the basic plan establishment and feasibility study by this coming September.

Incheon Port Authority CEO Nam Bong-hyeon noted that the agency will do its best to actively reflect the thoughts of the freight industry, and increase the number of port logistics support facilities, and thereby resolve the chronic parking problem and spend less on logistics expenses."
