Kakinada Container Terminal successfully handles high parcel vessel


Kakinada Container Terminal has achieved another significant landmark by safely handling a high parcel vessel of 1,750 moves. The vessel berthed on July 4, 2018 and sailed on July 6 after the discharge of 1,300 units and export of 450 units and hatch cover moves. It had arrived from Yangon to discharge the boxes and proceeded to Yangon with shipments of sugar.

The KCT team completed the vessel handling, factoring in the unpredictable rain, etc., achieving average productivity of 20.81 moves per hour, highlighted a release.

M.V. BLPL Trust is operated by BLPL. BLPL has been amongst the consistent supporters of Kakinada Container Terminal, regularly carrying sugar to Yangon. It has also occasionally carried other cargo to other destinations as well.

The KCT management thanked BLPL for giving it the opportunity to prove its mettle. BLPL was also happy as this heavy parcel was completed within the stipulated time, the release pointed out.

Mr M. Subramanian, Terminal Manager, said this was a happy moment for KCT and thanked BLPL for reposing confidence in the terminal, the release added.
