Anping Port Development Project
Anping was Taiwan’s largest commercial port prior to the 20th century. However, silting limited vessel access and business turned elsewhere. The Port of Kaohsiung, TIPC, Ltd. has invested significant effort to reestablish the commercial viability of Anping, located strategically near the city of Tainan and close to local industry and transportation.
The renovation and further development of Anping Port  is a key policy of the central government, involving both the Port of Kaohsiung, TIPC, Ltd. and the Tainan City Government. Anping Port is a cornerstone of regional economic development and of the local community and residents. 
Inbound and outbound trade volumes have been growing at Anping Port. The 10 million tons handled in 2006 set a 30-year record. The port offers highly preferential rates to attract consignors and fully utilize port capacity. Stevedoring and tugboat services are now privatized to facilitate efficiency and competitiveness. Highly competitive rates, high operating efficiencies, and high quality services are hoped to attract increasing business to the port - promoting local economic development and enhancing the overall prosperity of greater Tainan.

Links to the Domestic Transportation Grid
Anping Port connects to National Freeways 1 and 3 and Expressway 86 via Tainan City outer ring roads (Provincial Routes 1 and 17).

Future Prospects
Anping Port is Port of Kaohsiung, TIPC, Ltd.'s most important auxiliary port. Plans are underway for its further development as a true “multifunctional” harbor, hosting tourist / passenger lines and expanding regional commercial connections throughout the region to Southeast Asia, Northeast Asia, Mainland China, Hong Kong and Taiwan's offshore islands.
