APM Terminals Poti Georgia continues to break its productivity records and increase operational performance while investing in equipment as part of ongoing modernisation efforts. On 21st September 2020, APM Terminals Poti Georgia marked a new operational record, with 697 containers, 1156 TEUs, being handled in a single shift, which equates to an average of one container being handled every minute. This surpasses the previous record of 628 containers set in May this year.

The milestone follows another record at the terminal earlier in September, where 204 tons of Out of Gauge Cargo were handled with Mobile Harbour Cranes. The achievement is part of a wider project, which includes handling of 4 different pieces of OOG cargo, 3 of which (with a total weight of 560 tons) will be handled by the end of September. The first piece – a 204-ton generator - is not only the heaviest unit ever handled with harbour cranes at Poti Sea Port, but in any Georgian port overall.

At the same time, APM Terminals Poti continues the upgrade of its equipment fleet with the purchase of 8 new terminal tractors and trailers in line with Poti Sea Port’s modernisation programme and ongoing commitment to improving operational efficiencies. Terminal tractors, with their specially designed trailers, are used to safely transport containers from the vessel side to the container yard, allowing for uninterrupted and reliable operations. These brand-new tractors are computer equipped and wirelessly connected to the Port’s operating system, enabling real-time tracing of container movements.
