Colombo Port to mark 7 millionth TEU container volume
The Colombo Port will mark its 7 millionth TEU container volume today.
The Sri Lanka Port Authority will hold a special ceremony to celebrate the milestone today under the patronage of Minister of Ports and Shipping Sagala Ratnayake.
The Port Authority said reaching the seven million TEU container volume is a major milestone in the history of the Colombo’s container handling operation.
Sri Lanka’s Colombo Port was adjudged as the fastest growing port in the world and even ahead of competing ports such as Singapore, the ports of Dubai, Fujairah, Salalah in the Gulf and Tanjun Pelepas in Malaysia in the first half of 2018.
