Gulftainer subsidiary third-party logistics (3PL) provider Momentum Logistics, has completed construction of its new container wash and repair depot, at the Sharjah Inland Container Depot (SICD). This brings the number of fully-equipped facilities operated by Momentum to three, including one at Khorfakkan Container Terminal and one at Port Khalid.
Work on the facility started in March 2009, and the container repair unit is now fully operational offering a full range of services including container inspections, CSC plate renewals, structural repairs to all types of containers and a full set of services for reefer containers.
Momentum’s container repair division operates a 24 hours a day, seven days a week repair service for steel, aluminium, open-top containers, flat racks and reefers transiting Sharjah and Khorfakkan terminals, and now SICD, combining competitive rates with rapid turnaround time. Other services include refurbishment, steam cleaning, washing and pre-trip inspections of reefers, and the division also maintains and re-supplies ships’ reefer kits.
