Chennai International Terminals Pvt Ltd (CITPL), a wholly-owned subsidiary of PSA International Pte Ltd, was named “Container Terminal Operator of the Year” for the third time at the 10th South East Cargo & Logistics Awards 2018 ceremony. 

CITPL had previously won the “Container Terminal Operator of the Year” award in 2017 and 2013, whilst PSA-Sical was named “Container Terminal Operator of the Year” in 2016. The latest achievement marks three awards in three consecutive years for PSA India’s terminals.

I would like to thank our staff, the union, Chennai Port Trust, our customers and stakeholders for their invaluable support. CITPL will continue to work hard, innovate and provide value for its stakeholders.” 

Mr Mike Formoso, Managing Director of PSA India, said, “I would like to congratulate CITPL’s management and staff on winning this prestigious award for the third time: it is strong endorsement of CITPL’s contribution to the maritime trade on India’s east coast. We are immensely grateful for the support of the trade, port users, the union and key stakeholders such as Chennai Port Trust and will continue to do our utmost to further strengthen the trust and confidence placed in us, as we mark PSA’s 20th year in India this year.” 

The awards ceremony was held in Chennai on June 29.
