Over 6,000 container moves in 18.5 hours is a new record for ONE in Singapore.
Ocean Network Express (ONE) and PSA Singapore (PSA) have jointly celebrated setting a berth productivity record on while handling ONE’s “NYK SWAN”, at PSA Singapore’s Pasir Panjang Terminal on 21 December 2018. “Over 6,000 container moves were accomplished in 18.5 hours or a gross berth productivity rate of over 300 ship-shore moves, which was an exceptionally high performance standard in container shipping operation,” ONE and PSA stated.
PSA has previously reported that it achieved berth productivity of 300 moves per hour at Pasir Panjang on three occasions in early 2018, but the handling of the 14,000 TEU NYK SWAN set a new record. “This was a significant occasion for both ONE and PSA, as it not just represented the highest productivity rate by far demonstrated by an operating vessel of ONE, but also served as a new operational benchmark for PSA”.
The Port of Los Angeles recently claimed a record when APM Terminals at Pier 400 handled 27,846 TEU on and off the 15,500 Eleonora Maersk, but Singapore’s performance is at another level when it comes to overall efficiency. The Eleonora Maersk was in Los Angeles for eight days, where as the NYK SWAN arrived and departed Singapore within 28 hours. It is not known how many TEU were exchanged during the call.
