Kandla Port makes way for bigger vessels by hosting MV Zardis

In a first, Kandla Port recently handled MV Zardis with a LOA (Length overall) of 304.07 metres, making it the longest vessel to berth at the port.
In this voyage, the vessel would be loading 1041 TEUs of export containers to Bandar Abbas.
The arrival of MV Zardis at the port has elevated confidence about its capabilities and could eventually pave the way for it to emerge as a state-of-the-art container terminal fully capable to efficiently handle main line vessels including carrying out international transshipments.
The port states that this will help Kandla not only to generate container volumes but also in cost savings as it would greatly benefit scores of shippers, consignees, CHAs and transport fraternity who are in close proximity to Kandla as well as those located in the northern and western hinterland of India for whom Kandla is the nearest gateway port.
