Efficiency records broken during maiden call of Vietnam-Gulf of India service at GTI
APM Terminals Mumbai, also known as Gateway Terminals India (GTI) welcomed the maiden call of the newly added Vietnam Gulf India (VGI) service this week. MV ESL Kabir, operated by Emirates Shipping Line, berthed at 0900 hrs on 19-Sep-2023.
The vessel was received by GTI's Operations Team and Emirates Shipping lines and a special memento was presented to the Vessel Master to commemorate the occasion.
The VGI service opens a new chapter at GTI with its first ever connection to Vietnam. The service also calls at the APM Terminals operated Cai Mep terminal in Vietnam. The service connects to GTI through Laem Chabang and Port Kelang and then onwards to the Middle-East offering calls at Sohar, Dammam and Jebel Ali.
