PSA International's Chennai International Terminals Pvt Ltd (CITPL) has set a new vessel productivity record of 171 moves per hour for south and east India.

The terminal, one of the two container terminals operating at Chennai port, handled 3,023 moves in less than 19 hours on September 12, for the 4,252 TEU box ship, Wan Hai 507, reported The Hindu BusinessLine.



'Achieving a vessel rate of 171 moves per hour translates directly into cost savings for shipping lines and port users,' CITPL general manager T Madhan Mohan said in a statement.



'We are also working closely alongside Chennai Port Trust to enhance the competitiveness of the port.



'Recent reductions in vessel related charges, increases in free time for direct port deliveries (DPD) and direct port exports (DPE), streamlining of road access, cuts in short haul rail charges by Indian Railways and the development of an empty container depot inside the port area are just some of the initiatives being taken by stakeholders towards this objective,' he added.
