Jinchon Ferry orders new ro-ro ferry after 20 years

Tianjin-Inchon International Passenger & Cargo Shipping (more commonly known as Jinchon Ferry), which operates a passenger-and-container service between South Korea’s Incheon port, and China's Tianjin port, has ordered a new container-carrying ro-ro ferry.

Commissioned for KRW63 billion (US$56 million) at China’s Huanghai Shipbuilding, the vessel is a replacement for Jinchon’s only vessel, the 1990-built Tian Ren, which was sold for scrap in July 2020. Jinchon had acquired Tian Ren second-hand in March 2000.
