Ports & Cargo Handling Services Limited, a member of Sifax Group and concessionaire of Terminal C, Tin Can Island Port, Apapa, has added a new client to its list.
The latest addition is MOL Liner Limited. The shipping line made its maiden call at the terminal recently with MV MOL NALA vessel.
While welcoming the vessel’s crew to the terminal, Managing Director, Ports & Cargo Handling Services Limited, John Jenkins, expressed the company’s delight at the vessel’s maiden call, adding that the development is a testimony of the terminal’s readiness to welcome more clients.
He said, “It’s a good feeling having this ship berth at our terminal today. We are delighted that MOL, which is one the world’s largest ocean shipping fleet owners, would prefer our terminal for their operations. This does not come as a surprise to us as we have invested heavily, over the years, in both equipment and quality personnel. This has set our terminal apart.
“This business relationship with MOL is one of several partnerships we have consummated over the last few months. You would recall that Evergreen Lines also made its maiden call at this terminal about a week ago. We are not only providing quality services to existing clients but also strive daily to partner with new shipping lines across the world. ”
While responding on behalf of the vessel’s crew members, Captain S.M.N Jahangir, who was overwhelmed by the hospitality and excellent service provided by the company, expressed his joy at berthing at one of Africa’s prime ports.
“This is a resounding welcome we have received here today and it would stick in our memories wherever we sail to. Though we are sailing back very soon, my crew and I cannot wait to be back here again,” he said.
