SAGT ranked first in S.Asia, fourth in the world

SAGT ranked first in S.Asia, fourth in the world

South Asia Gateway Terminals (SAGT), the first private container terminal operator in Sri Lanka was ranked No. 1 in South Asia and no 4 in the world for Terminal Productivity by the Journal of Commerce USA.

Chief Commercial Officer Ted Muttiah and Commercial and Marketing Manager Dhashma Karunaratne presented a ceremonial plaque to Ports and Shipping Minister Arjuna Ranatunga, marking this recognition of Sri Lanka's Container Terminal operational capability in the global arena. Minister Ranatunge said this is a very good example of Sri Lanka's capabilities. This government is committed to developing the right structures for business to get on with doing business.

SAGT's berth productivity performance of 113 container moves per hour and an average of 34 container moves per hour per crane is ranked among the best in the world. In laymen's terms this means a vessel with a 1,000 container move count (load and discharge) can be completed in under 9 hours of quayside dwell time, deploying an average of 3.3 cranes.

Muttiah said these high productivity benchmarks are achieved through the collaborative efforts of many stakeholders of the Port of Colombo. The SLPA as the regulator and landlord is an integral part of ensuring a fertile framework for high performance outcomes."

"Our customers make an important contribution to the high-performance equation in the manner in which vessels are presented with a load or discharge plan allowing for optimum crane intensity".South Asia Gateway Terminals (SAGT) the first private stevedoring company in Sri Lanka (with over 50% of Sri Lankan shareholdership) commenced operations in 1999.
