Approach South Korea With Insight

RORO Ships

Pyeongtaek, Dangjin, Mokpo, Pohang and Ulsang Ocean Ports: Bulk cargo and RORO ships (Roll On/Roll Off) are mainly shipped rather than regular containers.

Know Your Airports

There are 15 official airports, but the ports that can actually ship and handle cargo are Incheon, Gimpo (Seoul), and less frequently Gimhae (Busan).

Typhoon Warning

About 26 typhoons strike the western part of the North Pacific annually, some of which have direct and indirect effects on South Korea.

Plan for a Different Peak Season

In typical years for South Korea international shipping, January-April is the busiest time for exports, especially to the USA.
