APM Terminals Pipavav breaks its own record on berth productivity on MECL service
APM Terminals Pipavav, the first port to be connected to the DFC in India; has broken its own record of berth productivity on MECL service. The port achieved the BP of 143.26 moves per hour on Maersk Sentosa of MECL service. The port outpaced its own mark of achieving 140 BP moves on the same service last year.
The MECL service connects India to USEC including ports of Savannah, Norfolk, Newark, Algeciras and Middle East ports of Port Said East, Djibouti, Salalah, Jebel Ali and Port Qasim. The vessel carried commodities like ceramics, auto Parts, yarn, seafood, potato, tiles, white goods, garments, wastepaper, newsprint for import and export.
Commenting on the outstanding achievement, Mr. Jakob Friis Sørensen, MD, APM Terminals Pipavav said, “We are delighted to create the new berth productivity milestone at our port. Achieving these milestones are a testimony of our customer centricity, seamless coordination to manage transit sensitive cargoes, skilled staff, and infrastructure competences. We are grateful to our customers, their representatives, USEC trade stakeholders and shipping lines for their abundant trust in our capabilities. We strive to provide the highest efficiency at the berth, at the yard and at the gate to our customers.”
