Adani Ports, Mundra successfully set a national record for the “largest parcel size of containers handled in one vessel call at any Indian container port” on 29 September.
According to a media statement, this accomplishment once again showcases Adani Port as India’s top private port and is a testimonial to the world-class infrastructure and productivity levels that Adani Ports proffers to the EXIM trade in India.
With a length of 337 metres, the MSC Bruxelles is amongst the largest vessels to call at Indian ports. The vessel called Adani International Container Terminal Private Limited (AICTPL) on 27 September at 0800 hours. During the vessel’s port stay of 48.5 hours, the terminal exchanged a hitherto unprecedented 10,254TEUs, surpassing its own record of 8,703TEUs, which was set on MSC Fillippa on 4 September 2016.
On the occasion, Mr Ennarasu Karunesan, CEO APSEZ Mundra & Tuna Ports, shared Adani Group Chairman’s Vision of Nation Building adding that cargo ships are getting bigger and larger expects to handle greater volumes from Asia, particularly India, to Europe and US.
Mr Ennarasu Karunesan stated: “To meet our customer expectations and demand, we are continuously improving our standard to make Mundra a world class port and this is one step more towards the journey of Nation Building.”
Mr Ennarasu also expressed his gratitude to Mediterranean Shipping Company JV partner of APSEZ for reposting faith and confidence in APSEZ Mundra Team.
Adani Mundra port is the largest container port in India, capable of accommodating the largest container ships afloat today in terms of capacity and draught.
Since its commencement of container terminal operations, APSEZ has routinely created such milestones in performance as all 3 previous records for the largest parcel size are set by Adani. The team is confident that the company will continue to set many more such records in future.
