The Shinagawa Container Terminal opened in 1967 as Japan’s first.
The Tokyo Metropolitan Government had managed and administered it as a public container terminal, but since April 2009 it has been managed and administered by TPTC. This terminal, whose wharf extends 745 meters (190 meters of which is the foreign and miscellaneous trade terminal) and has a depth of 10 meters, is mainly used by small container ships on routes to Asia. As the agency designated with managing the wharf, TPTC manages and administers the facility.
