APM Terminals Pipavav Sets A High Performance Standard In Ship Movements

APM Terminals Pipavav successfully handled seven ship movements in about five hours with well-coordinated efforts by various expert teams.

This accomplishment is significant as it was reportedly undertaken in a one-way channel. A shipping movement is nothing but a marine operation that involves the unberthing, berthing, or vessels’ shifting operations calling the port for cargo activities. Shipping movement at the port is carried out through the coordinated efforts of the marine pilot, vessel masters and crew members, radio operators of the port control room, mooring gangs, harbour tugs, and a pilot boat.
