Adani Ports, Mundra sets national record for largest parcel size of containers handled in one vessel

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 September 29.

This accomplishment once again showcases Adani Ports as Indiaís top private port and is a testimonial to the world class infrastructure and productivity levels that Adani Ports offers to the ex-im trade in India, said the port release.

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 Pvt. Ltd (AICTPL) on September 27. During the vesselís port stay of 48.5 hours, the terminal exchanged a hitherto unprecedented 10,254 TEUs, surpassing its own record of 8,703 TEUs (set on MSC Fillippa on September 4, 2016).

On the occasion, Mr Ennarasu Karunesan, CEO, APSEZ Mundra & Tuna Ports, shared the Adani Group Chairmanís vision of nation building, adding that cargo ships are getting bigger to handle greater volumes from Asia, particularly India, to Europe and the US. "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," he said. He also expressed his gratitude to Mediterranean Shipping Company, JV partner of APSEZ, for reposing faith and confidence in the APSEZ Mundra Team.

The vessel, which arrived from Karachi, sailed for Nhava Sheva on September29, after safely completing all the planned moves.

Adani Mundra Port is the largest container port in India, capable of accommodating the largest containerships 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 were set by Adani. The team is confident that the company will continue to set many more such records in future, the release added.
