Abstract
The Incheon Region has numerous assets that fall within a Pentaport model.
These include the Incheon International Airport, the Port of Incheon, a coastal
industrial park, free economic zones, a leisure port, and Songdo new town
designed to be the future Silicon Valley of Korea. This paper looks at how
Northeast Asia trade flows between China and Korea might be enhanced by
Asian Hub. It looks also at their trade and logistics systems as well as their water
borne commerce. It proposes an integrated transportation system for the Yellow
Sea Region being beneficial to the economies of the Northeast Asia. It also stresses
that innovative technologies for ships, terminals and cargo handling systems
should be introduced to develop a competitive short sea shipping system in the
region and cooperation amon the regional countries will be essential to achieve
the final goal. The potential of methods of container shipping is discussed as it
might apply to short sea shipping in the Yellow Sea Region that could greatly
facilitate Incheon's situation with respect to the broader region in application of
the Pentaport model.
