The exercise covered a security declaration, notification of a security situation, and the establishment of a contingency committee, as well as overall crisis management.

The Cross-Harbor Tunnel connects container Terminal No.3 to the Chunghsiung Commercial Port Area on Chichin Island via a 440 meter wide, 14 meter deep thoroughfare. It was the first cross-harbor tunnel in Taiwan. The Cross-Harbor Tunnel plays an important role in the economic life of Kaohsiung, since it not only links the city to KaoPort's fourth Container Terminal, but is also the main thoroughfare for Chichin island residents to reach Kaohsiung.
