Gunsan Port Overview

Gunsan Port is located near the Geumgang river estuary, which can be found at the center of the western coast of the Korean peninsula. Initially opened to transport grain produced in the Honam plains, the port eventually had its facilities upgraded and various equipment modernized thanks to the increased volume of transported goods, and since the 1990s more trade with China and Russia has led to the development of Gunjang Port shinhang (new port). Gunsan Port serves as a gateway into the midwestern region of Korea and will become the driving force behind the West Coast era
