Krishnapatnam Port Container Terminal (KPCT) has sailed in to a new frontier with the addition of Bengal Tiger Line’s (BTL) new Colombo feeder service from KPCT.
This new fixed day weekly service calls on Colombo, KPCT and Chennai and had its maiden call on February 7 with vessel Tiger Bridge.
The service provides a direct import connection from Colombo to KPCT that will enable importers in the Andhra Pradesh hinterland to bring in their cargos coming from Europe, US, Middle East, West Africa and East Africa.
Importers can request their liners to import their cargo through KPCT to enjoy cost and time benefits. This will benefit import cargos like cashew from Africa, metal scrap from Middle East/US, timber from US/Canada/South America/Africa and raw materials for the paper and chemical industries.
