Increasingly higher productions, more and more cranes

Last week Hutchison Ports ECT Euromax set a new record on the CEM Triton of shipping line Evergreen. A berth productivity of more than 200 moves per hour allowed the CEM Triton to set sail within 24 hours. ECT used 7 cranes during the loading/unloading process.

Hutchison Ports ECT Rotterdam (ECT) invests continuously in improving its processes. Increasingly higher productions and the use of more and more cranes simultaneously on one ship are necessary to answer the scaling up in container shipping. ECT regularly uses 7 to 8 cranes on a vessel to realize the required productivity.

Leo Ruijs, CEO of ECT: ‘’This excellent result for the Euromax terminal and for ECT in general, is indicative of the good and intensive cooperation with our customers, essential to handle the ever larger ships."
