DP World Southampton strengthens fleet
DP World Southampton has received nine new Kalmar machines to strengthen its straddle carrier fleet.
It is also set to purchase two new super post-panamax quay cranes, which will be ready for delivery in 2018, which will allow it to simultaneously handle three of the largest container vessels afloat.
“We are committed to investing in our infrastructure and operational capabilities to ensure that Southampton can continue to meet the needs of our customers now and in the future,” said Nick Loader, chief executive officer at DP World Southampton.
He added: “Container ships are getting bigger all the time. The size of container ships importing and exporting goods around the world has nearly doubled in just under 10 years.” www.portstrategy....
