Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal(JNPCT), one of
the four terminals at JNPort which is directly managed by Port authority,
handled 14,29,936 TEUS till 7th March, surpassing
last year record of 14,29,277 TEUs and registering 7.6 per cent year on year growth
in cargo throughput.
In a major attempt to rise above conventional standards
and achieve high benchmarks, the Port owned Container Terminal has taken series
of measures for improving productivity parameters leading to record achievement.
During Last month( Feb’17), the berth
productivity was 73.37 moves per hour recording 13 per cent growth over Last Year’s
average of 64.98 moves per hr. Deployment of adequate
number of cranes according to the parcel/window size and the Initiative of ‘Identifying Champions’
proved very effective in motivating individuals and the team in achieving the
overall terminal target.
As a result, there has been drastic reduction of shift
change time thus helping in increasing the crane productivity from the regular 16 moves
per hour to 20 moves per hour and efforts are on to further improve to 22 moves per hour for faster handling of containers.
JNPT management congratulated the entire team of JNPCT for
this record performance and thanked all the stakeholders for their continued
support in achieving this feat.
