1M TEU for Bharat Mumbai

A cake-eating ceremony was attended by Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) Chairman, Shri Sanjay Sethi, IAS; CMA CGM India Managing Director, Ugo Vincent; PSA India Managing Director, Mike Formoso; and management and staff from all three companies and port bodies.


The "million" landmark took place just 20 months since BMCT commenced operations in February 2018. BERMUDA plies the Swahili Express (SWAX) service together with service partners Emirates Shipping Line and Hapag Lloyd, linking Mumbai with East Africa and the Gulf.


BMCT says it has provided SWAX with 100% berth on arrival to date, allowing the service to catch up any delays in the schedule.


A second milestone was also achieved in the call: the highest number of moves of a SWAX call at BMCT to date, totally 1,868 moves. Given the nature of the tradelane, the service also handles large amounts of out-of-gauge and breakbulk cargo, a fast-growing market segment at BMCT, given the facilities and available room to grow for carriers.
