first_imgzoom Höegh Delhi, the 200m long and 6 000-vehicle-capacity pure car and truck carrier, was the first call to the new Indira Container Terminal (ICT) in Mumbai on November 26.The successful trial berthing opens opportunities for the commencement of regular vessel calls at the terminal. The automobile manufacturers can benefit from more calls and expeditious loading, accommodating their consistent growth in exports whereas the shipping line would be able to offer dedicated scheduled services with faster turnarounds, simultaneously relieving the pressure of congestion at Mumbai Port Trust’s other berths.“The trial berthing at the ICT was successfully performed by MV Höegh Delhi thanks to close coordination between Mumbai Port, ICTPL , Höegh Autoliners and Merchant shipping Services Pvt ltd.
