Modern Terminals Limited was established in 1969 and has been committed to operational excellence and to providing its customers with the best service possible ever since it opened Hong Kong's first purpose-built container terminal in September 1972.

"It was an extremely challenging year for the maritime and port industry in 2023 as world trade remained soft with limited growth in the world’s largest economies after the pandemic.  High interest rates and inflation have been impacting consumer confidence, and their disposable income and spending pattern.  In addition, geopolitical tensions in various locations have brought uncertainties to the global container trade and are impacting cargo volumes in and out of China. Industry analysts are forecasting a low single-digit growth in global container trade in 2024. Though still positive, the expected growth is lower than the average of the previous ten years."
