Kattupalli International Container Terminal (KICT) handles maiden import vessel


It was a red-letter day (rather night) for the management of L & T- managed Kattupalli International Container Terminal (KICT) on April 18, when the Rs 4000-crore newly developed container handling facility handled a maiden import-laden vessel.

According to sources, X-PRESS INDUS (TCX service), a vessel belonging to X-press Feeders, reached the terminal about 7.20 PM on April 18 and left the port, after successful handling, by 1 AM on April 19.

About 162 TEUs – 152 import and 10 export boxes – were handled at the terminal.

It may be noted here that the KICT sources had earlier told Sagar Sandesh that more and more vessels would call at their facility from April onwards.
