In the first six months of 2016, DP World’s terminal in Cochin, India, has increased its throughput by 29% to 200,000 teu.
Over 350 vessels called at International Container Transhipment Terminal between January and June 2016.
In a statement, DP World said that services connecting the Far East, Middle East and Europe have been doing particularly well.
The terminal is situated in the south of India and aims to take a slice of the lucrative Indian transhipment market. At the moment, most transhipment for India is handled in the Sri Lankan port of Colombo.
The terminal has recently installed a Zodiac terminal operating system, which has been developed by DP World.
DP World Cochin have also been working on improving connectivity to the state of Karnataka, just to the north of Cochin, and the state’s main city Bangalore in particular.
