It said that "For the month of Feb'17 the berth productivity was 73.37 moves/hr recording 13% growth over LY avg of 64.98 moves/hr.”
Deployment of adequate number of cranes according to the parcel/window size and the Initiative of 'Identifying Champions' proved very effective in motivating individuals and the team in achieving the overall terminal target.
It said that "As a result, there has been drastic reduction of shift change time thus helping in increasing the crane productivity from the regular 16 moves/hr to 20 moves/hr and efforts are on to further improve to 22 moves/hr for faster handling of containers.”
