Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port has in­au­gu­rated the maiden call of ‘M V Maersk Bentonville’ as part of the di­rect weekly ser­vice from Kr­ish­pat­nam to Salalah (Oman). The first voy­age of Maersk Bentonville dis­charged 551 TEU’s and loaded 770 TEU’s of ex­ports. The weekly ser­vice is ex­pected to pro­vide fastest and most com­pet­i­tive ser­vice to the ex­porters and im­porters of Andhra Pradesh, Te­lan­gana, Kar­nataka and North­ern Tamil Nadu to the ports of US East Coast, Mediter­ranean, Europe and Africa.

A for­mal in­au­gu­ral cer­e­mony was held to com­mem­o­rate the maiden call in the pres­ence of Anil Yend­luri, CEO, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port and Jithen­dra Nim­ma­gadda, COO, KPCT. The se­nior rep­re­sen­ta­tives of Maersk and Saf­ma­rine along with KPCT rep­re­sen­ta­tives were present. “The new ser­vice will sub­stan­tially min­imise the cost and tran­sit time in th­ese ar­eas, which will be of a huge ben­e­fit to our cus­tomers. The ser­vice will fur­ther get a boost from CONCOR’s new rake ser­vice,” said Yend­luri.
