In 1426, the era of King Sejong, Ulsan was one of the three trade ports in Korea. And in 1963, Ulsan harbor became an open foreign trade port. Since then, Ulsan harbor has grown to be an industrially strategical and leading port supporting the petrochemical, shipbuilding, and car manufacturing industries. Now, it is the largest industrial complex in Korea in terms of both volume and value of the cargo handled, which amounts up to about 150 million tons a year.

The port authorities are planning to develop Ulsan Port into the center of integrated circulation of the southeast region of Korea, and eventually into one of the main ports of the 21st century equipped with advanced harbor facilities and systematic management while remaining environmentally friendly.
