Seoul: The Busan Port Authority (BPA) has inaugurated the new Busan International Distribution Centre (BIDC) located at the phase 2 of Distripark adjacent to the North Container Terminal at Busan New Port. The $11.9m international logistics centre, which covers 14,454sq mtr will be operated by a consortium consisting of Japanese logistics companies - DAT-Japan and Fukuoka Transportation and Daewoo Logistics.
