The CSP Abu Dhabi terminal has completed loading and unloading operations from two 20,000 TEU vessels on the MEX trunk line, setting a new record for single-shift vessel cargo handling.
The port successfully completed handling operations of 4,344 TEU goods aboard the M.V. Cosco Shipping Capricorn and M.V. Cosco Shipping Aquarius vessels on 18 June, after 32 consecutive hours.
The CSP container terminal will become the first terminal in the Middle East to implement an autonomous port truck system.
Following a two-month trial period, a total of six electric Q-Trucks will be commissioned by CSP Abu Dhabi Terminal and tasked with supporting mother vessel loading and unloading activities within the facility’s container yard.
