ADT achieves berth productivity of 206 moves per hour on CMA CGM Thames

02/08/2015
Khalifa Port sets new productivity record on CMA CGM Thames.

Abu Dhabi Terminals set a new productivity record by handling 2615 moves in just under 13 hours on the 9,365 TEU CMA CGM Thames which called into Khalifa Port on Tuesday 21st July . An operational productivity metric and record of 206 Berth Moves per Hour (BMPH) at an average of 46.38 Gross Moves per Hour (GMPH) was achieved during her port stay.  

This is the first time ADT has crossed the important benchmark of 200 berth moves per hour;  achieving and maintaining these high levels of productivity is one of the key value drivers for both the shipping lines and port operator in order to maximize efficiencies and increase terminal throughput and capacity.

“This productivity record is the result of excellent collaboration and planning by both CMA CGM and ADT operational teams. KPCT  ranks among the top five in Europe, Middle East and Africa with regards to port productivity and this record expresses continued confidence in ADT’s ability to perform and maximize value for our customers,” said Simon Brebner, Chief Commercial Officer at ADT. 

Claude Lebel, Senior Vice President at CMA CGM Gulf  Regional Office in Dubai commented: "Fast  turnaround is essential for our ships and Abu Dhabi Khalifa Port has set their new record moving  206 units per hour allowing our  vessel to be completed in 13 hours. This is our third call for this new service and a good cooperation with ADT can only improve the service we render our customers."

The productivity is evident from the volumes that are increasing year-on-year at KPCT. The total number of TEUs handled by ADT during the first 6 months of 2015 increased by 36% compared to same period in 2014.
