Handles over 25,000 TEUs & 26 vessels, besides longest-ever vessels
Kandla International Container Terminal Pvt. Ltd (KICTPL), one of the flagship projects of the J. M. Baxi Group, yet again achieved new records when it crossed 25,000 TEUs and handled 26 vessels in January 2019, just two years from the commencement of commercial operations.
KICTPL, being the closest terminal to the northern and western hinterlands of the country with an exclusive on-dock rail facility, had already created a series of records in January when it handled M. V. Zardis with a LOA of 304.07 m, M. V. Behta with 299.20 m and M. V. Basht with 294.10 m, which were the longest vessels to be handled at Kandla.
On this occasion, Team KICT extended its gratitude to all the trade members who believed in the terminal, and all the vendors who supported the facility throughout. The team looks forward to showcase many more surprises in 2019 and establish the terminal as a low-cost, international-standard gateway for the trade at large.
