This is one more significant achievement for Mundra Port. In 2021, Mundra Port turned into the biggest compartment port in India, and presently the port has accommodated, at one of its terminals, the biggest holder vessel to call India. The call of APL Raffles does not just support the capacities of the port to deal with huge holder vessels, yet in addition, emphasizes the job of ACMTPL in helping exchange among India and its key trading accomplices. APL Raffles, almost equal to the size of four football fields, is one of the largest vessels in the fleet of CMA CGMA, BUILT-IN 2013.
At the hour of accommodating the vessel’s draft was 14.8 m, displacement 2,01,548 MT, and had a freight of 13,159 TEUs on board. The ship has shown up from the Middle East conveying imports from the Gulf, Greater China, and Southeast Asia. The vessel traded near 4000 TEUs of import, export, and trans-shipment containers while it was at Mundra Port. APL Raffles will proceed with her forward journey to Far East Asia.
Mundra Port keeps on drawing large ships, solidifying its position as the most favored gateway of Indian EXIM cargoes, particularly agricultural items and manufactured products. Other remarkably huge holder vessels which have approached Mundra Port are MSC Regulus which has an LOA of 366.45 m, MSC Valeria which has an LOA of 366 m.
The port offers 26 compartments and two single-point moorings with a yearly limit to handle 248.82 MMT freight with committed terminals for various freight and commodity types. Mundra Port, India’s greatest business port by volumes, is deep water, an all-climate port, prepared to deal with dry mass, break mass, project freight, fluid, holders, vehicles, and raw petroleum.
