T-LOG2022 Technical Visits: Incheon National University

Gyeongin Ara Waterway Logistics Complex, 21 September 2022.

I attended the 9th International Conferences on Transport and Logistics (T-LOG2022) at the Graduate School of Logistics at the Incheon National University. I chaired the panel on the Shipping and Port Industry and then participated in a day of technical site visits.

The site visits commenced with an introduction to the Incheon Free Economic Zone.

The logistics solution to the free trade zone's transfer of air freight in the Korean Air Cargo Terminal was interesting and hectic!

We then went from the airport to the entrance to the canal that connects Incheon International Airport to Gimpo International Airport. The canal doubles as a way to drain the nearby flood plain.

Connecting the Han River to the Yellow Sea had been planned hundreds of years before Korea had the earthmoving technology to make it a reality. The result was the Gyeongin Ara Waterway, completed in 2012.

Lunch was a traditional Korean affair. Thank you, Incheon National University and T-LOG! That was an excellent event!

Traditional Korean Meal. A bit tough on the old knees!

We also visited the Ara Skywalk which juts out over the canal.
