APM Terminals Algeciras hits a new Port Moves Per Hour (PMPH) record for a vessel berthed at Juan Carlos I berth. On Monday, 25th of March, 187,82  PMPH were registered on MSC Kalina.

The Operations Department of the largest terminal in the Mediterranean confirmed that this is the best result since MSC Ditte called in September 2017. Back then it registered 183,64 PMPH.

MSC Kalina is 366 meters long and 51 meters wide, and has capacity to carry 13,798 containers measured in 20 feet units (TEUs).

Nine cranes worked on the vessel, which is not only a milestone in the terminal’s history, but also the result of a great planning and execution teamwork.

This vessel runs on the AE6 service, arriving from Suez on its way to Antwerp. 5,014 TEUs were loaded and discharged during the 17 hour port call in Algeciras.
