Yemen: Kota Carum Arrives at Port of Aden

Kota Carum Arrives at Port of Aden

 

Aden Container Terminal (ACT), operated by global marine terminal operator DP World, has received and serviced one of the largest container vessels to call at the historic Yemeni port, the Kota Carum, owned by Singapore-based Pacific International Lines.

The 300-metre long, 6,606 TEU (twenty-foot equivalent container unit) ship, built in 2011, is the largest PIL container ship to ever berth at Aden.

The management of DP World Aden rolled out a well-practised drill of discharging and loading containers with its highly skilled workforce and state-of-the-art quayside handling technology to deliver premium turnaround time to the customer. PIL Kota Carum was berthed on arrival and stayed alongside for 21 hours and 14 minutes.

Captain Faisal Al Qahtani, Senior Vice President and Managing Director, DP World, Middle East Region, said: ‟We congratulate Pacific International Lines and their new vessel, Kota Carum, on her maiden visit to Aden and the Red Sea area, the busiest sea trade transit route in the world today. This port call once again demonstrates the efficient gateway and transshipment role played by DP World Aden and its importance to Yemen‟s domestic economy. We commend DP World Aden‟s team for the meticulous ability with which they safely and efficiently discharged and loaded a ship of this size.”

Arthur Flynn, General Manager, DP World Aden, said: “PIL Kota Carum is among the largest ships to visit us and we thank PIL for their confidence in DP World Aden‟s service capabilities. DP World Aden‟s natural deep water harbour and proven operational efficiencies has made it possible for us to handle this mega liner. We are proud that our operations team was able to safely achieve an excellent turnaround time for our valued customer.”

With its 16-metre quayside depth, DP World Aden occupies a strategic position as a gateway port to meet the needs of Yemen‟s importers and exporters, and is also well placed to compete for the significantly growing transshipment volumes in the busy Red Sea region.
