SAGT, No.1 for Terminal productivity in South Asia, No. 4 in the world

SAGT, No.1 for Terminal productivity in South Asia, No. 4 in the world

SAGT is recognized by the Journal of Commerce (JOC USA) in its annual Terminal Productivity Ranking 2014 as being the No. 1 ranked in South Asia and No. 4 in the world.

SAGT is the first private container terminal operator in the Port of Colombo commencing in 1999. It consists of four shareholders - John Keells Holdings, APM Terminals, Sri Lanka Ports Authority and Peony investments (Evergreen Group subsidiary).

The 14.2m draft, 3 berth terminal transformed operational efficiency in the Port of Colombo with an average of 34 moves per hour per crane among the world's best.

With a diversified book of customers the terminal continues to show resilience in the face of increased competition in the port following the commissioning of the South harbour deep draft facilities.

Commenting on the JOC rankings, Ted Muttiah, SAGT's Chief Commercial Officer observed "Team SAGT is very pleased with the recognition by such a reputable independent global organization. These performance outcomes are the result of careful strategic planning involving the various stakeholders. It is a wonderful endorsement of the hard work, passion and commitment by our people dedicated to being the best. Our customers too, make a significant contribution to these efficiencies in the manner in which vessels are presented for operation".

"Importantly, this highlights the Port of Colombo's capacity AND capability to deliver mutually gainful outcomes to the international trade stakeholders as the mega hub of South Asia" he added.

The terminal's clarion call "Gain the Advantage with SAGT", resonates well with this global ranking.
