TICT marked a milestone

MOL announced that the MOL-operated Tokyo International Container Terminal (TICT) (*) reached a major milestone on August 21—a cumulative total of 20 million TEUs handled. The terminal started operations in November 1971, and in December of that year, the full containership Kamakura Maru, serving the Asia-Europe route, was the first vessel to call at TICT. After 47 years of successful operations, TICT becomes the first terminal in the Port of Tokyo to handle 20 million TEUs.

A ceremony to celebrate the occasion drew distinguished guests from the Tokyo Metropolitan Government Bureau of Port and Harbor and Tokyo Port Terminal Co., Ltd., which operate and manage the port and harbor and the wharf at Tokyo Port, executives from Ocean Network Express (Japan), Ltd., the cargo owner whose containers put TICT over the 20 million mark.

TICT strives to enhance and expand its container terminal capacities through measures such as the introduction of an aseismically designed wharf and a series of high-capacity gantry cranes, establishing stable operations with cargo volumes increasing and successively larger vessels calling at the port.

The MOL Group continues to offer stress-free terminal services with higher convenience for customers.

(*) MOL rents facilities from Tokyo Port Terminal Co., Ltd. and operates TICT. The MOL Group company Utoc Corporation (President: Masahiro Tanabe; headquarters Yokohama-shi, Kanagawa Prefecture) oversees loadng/unloading operations as the prime port transport contractor.
