Another record for Khorfakkan
Gulftainer’s Khorfakkan Container Terminal has just broken the productivity record for a United Arab Shipping Company (UASC) vessel, during the recent visit of the Mayssan to the port.
The new score of 220 moves per hour took place on Berth No. 5, where KCT took delivery of two new gantry cranes a couple of weeks ago, bringing the total number at the facility to 16.
“We are proud and pleased with this record performance, and we believe that it helped to improve schedule integrity for the ‘Mayssan’, allowing it to meet berthing windows in other ports and helping UASC to save fuel-oil costs – a particularly important consideration in these challenging days,” said Peter Richards, Gulftainer’s group director and general manager.
“KCT is known for its efficient, speedy performance, and the recent addition of two new gantries will help us to increase our reputation even further in this respect. Right now, this fast, efficient turnover is exactly what shipping lines are looking for to cut down costs,” added Richards.
