Vietnam: CMIT Achieves Productivity Milestone for Container Vessel Handling

CMIT Achieves Productivity Milestone for Container Vessel Handling

During the same week that Cai Mep International Terminal (CMIT) was officially inaugurated by HRH The Crown Prince of Denmark and the Vice Minister of Transportation of Vietnam, CMIT also achieved a new productivity milestone for handling a container vessel in Vietnam.

Whilst working the Gjertrud Maersk on 30th November, CMIT achieved a new berth productivity record of 124.95 berth moves per hour whilst using just four Ship-to-Shore Quay Cranes. Average gross productivity for the vessel exceeded 36 moves per crane per hour across the four cranes.

Whilst we are aware of vessels achieving berth productivity slightly higher than this within the Cai Mep – Thi Vai port complex, this has been achieved whilst deploying 5 or more quay cranes” commented Finn G. Mogensen, Head of Operations at CMIT. “We believe this is a new record for a four crane operation, and we expect to deliver a further quantum leap in berth productivity for our customers in 2012 with the delivery of a fifth quay crane in January” he added.

CMIT handled its first vessel, CMA CGM Columba on 30th March 2011 whilst still in the midst of construction, and since that time has welcomed 105 vessel calls and handled over 155,000 TEU of export and import containers to and from Vietnam’s major trading partners in Europe, North America and Asia.

Located approximately 50km southeast of Ho Chi Minh City, CMIT is the first container terminal in Vietnam to offer shipping lines direct access to the 14m deep Cai Mep Terminal Channel as well as the first to provide super-post Panamax quay cranes catering to ultra large container ships up to 22 containers wide.
