Modern Terminals has been a pioneer in the growth of the container terminal industry in Hong Kong and Mainland China ever since we opened Hong Kong’s first purpose-built container-handling facility in 1972.

Today, we own and operate container terminals at Kwai Tsing Container Port, Hong Kong. We operate and have a majority shareholding in Da Chan Bay Terminal One in the Pearl River Delta (PRD) and Taicang International Gateway in the Yangtze River Delta (YRD). We hold equity stakes in Shekou Container Terminals and Chiwan Container Terminal, both in the PRD.

Modern Terminals is a customer-focused service provider. The company’s expertise in the industry, deployment of state-of-the-art equipment and the commitment of its people enable it to deliver a unique customer experience at the terminals it operates. The company’s Hong Kong facilities celebrated the handling of the 100 millionth twenty-foot equivalent unit (TEU) in June 2014.
