Growing trade volumes and changing shipping patterns in Asian countries of the Asian-Pacific Economic Cooperation (APEC) agreement and the United States are creating new economic opportunities for the Republic of Korea. This paper contributes to the discussion of the Korean Pentaport strategy in two ways. The first section provides and analysis of recent trade patterns between the APEC countries and the United States, with an emphasis on the Republic of Korea. The findings of the next section demonstrate changing trade volumes and shipping patterns between Asia and the United States. The final section of the paper discusses the current intermodal coastal shipping practices in the United states along the Gulf of Mexico and identifies some of the hindering issues to a broader application of Short Sea Shipping.
