Mombasa port breaks cargo-handling record

The Port of Mombasa is edging closer towards attaining 48 hours’ turnaround time for bigger vessels and enhancing its competitiveness following consistent record productivity performances recorded at the facility.

This year, the port has established four successive productivity records. On Sunday (Nov. 11), another record was broken by container carrier MV Ever Diamond which recorded 1523 moves within an eight hours shift.

The new record by the Panama-flagged vessel comes barely three weeks after another vessel MSC Maxine hit a record 1450 moves within an eight-hour shift. Equally, the vessel recorded an average of 190 gross moves per hour.

The record is inching towards 200 moves per hour which is associated with top global ports.
