SHIPPING: Cape Town Port Performs Better

 



Recent Western Cape Business News

The Cape Town Container Terminal, operated by Transnet Port Terminals (TPT), has exceeded performance targets in the second quarter (Q2) of its fiscal year placing the terminal in a better position to compete in the Productivity SA’s National Productivity Awards later this month.

The terminal is currently undergoing a R5.4 billion five-year expansion programme, which entails the introduction of new equipment and reconfiguration of stacks.

As the terminal gears up for Productivity SA’s National Productivity Award ceremony that takes place on 28 October in Johannesburg, it boasts exceptional performance in Q2 ending September 2011. This is evident in the following achievements:

·         Its gross crane moves per hour (GCH) of 28.7 against a target of 26 (GCH is the common measure of productivity in the container handling business. It is a crucial factor in container shipping, which requires fast and efficient movement of containers by crane operators to reduce the overall cost of doing business.)

·         The ship working hours (SWH) of 58.2 moves against a target of 44 (SWH is the number of containers that have been moved by the number of cranes working on the vessel in one hour. It is a key performance indicator for customers.)

·         The truck turnaround time (TTT) of 32.2 minutes against a target of 35. (TTT measures truck service through the amount of time a truck spends in the terminal from A-Check to P-Check).
