Haifa Port has recently achieved a record productivity of 318.8 containers per ship per hour while working on the ZIM Los Angeles, and also broke the record for the number of containers moved by a single crane – 74.7 containers per hour.
Haifa Port recently won an Award of Excellence for community impact at the Navis Inspire Awards held in San Francisco earlier this year.
The record output of 318.8 containers per ship per hour was achieved with the help of its Carmel Terminal’s six ship-to-shore cranes, which were assigned to operate on the ZIM Los Angeles.
During the shift, the record for a single crane’s productivity was also broken when the crew operating the G21 crane moved 74.7 containers per crane per hour. The Carmel Terminal average crane hour in 2015 was 30 containers per hour.
By implementing the Navis TOS system and improving the capabilities of the Carmel Terminal, Haifa Port is now well-prepared to handle large container ships and provide them with, as has been proven by this week’s achievement and by the port’s increased overall productivity during the past year.
Mendi Zaltzman, CEO of Haifa Port, concluded: “We understand what is required of us. Service excellence and high productivity are the cornerstones of this port’s future, and we will only continue to improve in all areas. We challenge the shipping line decision makers to test us.”
