PSA India broke its volume record for the month of December with traffic of 257,347 TEU as it enjoyed a strong finish to the end of 2020.
The company said PSA Chennai broke its own monthly volume record of 93,514 TEU for the month of December after PSA Mumbai did the same.
Mike Formoso, Managing Director of PSA India, said all PSA terminals operated uninterrupted throughout 2020 and handled every scheduled vessel call and other unscheduled ones that had been diverted due to congestion elsewhere.
The results were released at the same time as the inaugural call of the M.V. Wan Hai 507, as part of the new joint Wai Han Lines/Interasia Lines service which increases its connectivity to the Far East.
A Wan Hai Lines spokesman said, “PSA Mumbai is equipped with the latest technology to offer customers fast turnaround of their vessels and is also well-connected by major highways and rail networks to key markets in Maharashtra, Gujarat, and the National Capital Region of India.
“By further strengthening its current service scope among India and Far East corridors, PSA Mumbai will enhance Wan Hai Lines’ market coverage to better serve customers’ needs.
“CI2 service is jointly operated with Interasia Lines (IAL) by using 6 vessels with nominal capacity of 4,250 TEU, 4 deployed by Wan Hai Lines and 2 vessels by IAL.
“With its friendly working atmosphere, the two services (CI2 and CI6) will now offer better service to customers in Nhava Sheva operating from PSA Mumbai.”
