This Study looked at what steps were necessary in seeking strategies for International Passenger Terminal of the North-eastern Area In China, their methodologies as well as what methodologies are available to counter current conditions in which ship transport demands have plunged with the expansion of other transport infrastructures such as high speed rail.
Study of documents in both Korea and other area of China were done to research direction of international Passenger Terminal policies, countermeasures to changes in the service market conditions and environments , growth potential of Chinese Shipping Market, directions for role-sharing of International Passenger Terminal of the North-eastern Area In China, and possibilities for future expansions.
In addition, as for management and operation of the terminal, it is very difficult to carry out systematic management and operation because of the separation of the ownership and management body. Lack of manpower and budget shortfall have long been pointed as its chronic problem, which leads to disappointing service. Complacent management and inflexible operation prevent terminal from dealing with changing market needs. The problems above mentioned, in the end, would lower efficient operation of international passenger terminal and the development of the nations cruise tour market.
Therefore progress in international passenger terminal, maritime transport gateway, should be made so that China develops into the stronghold of maritime transport and tourism.
The final results is necessary to build a function-oriented terminal that has scale. Terminal that is under construction or planned to be built must be differentiated from the present ones. The terminal waiting room should be functional according to a local island development project and the number classified by area, route, season and time zone of passengers. and Terminal is usually located by the sea so it is a good place where people spend their spare time and finally the transportation by land, there are several alternative transportation means such as bus, vehicle, train, airplane, but only ship and airplane are available at the sea. It is important that the punctuality of passenger ship to minimize inconvenience by considering the features of each passenger ship, a route and general weather conditions.
