LOAD / DISCHARGE FACILITY SPECIFICATION

Shippers, receivers and stevedores prefer CRANE BERTH where they are getting minimum two shore cranes from port with Safe Working Load (SWL) of 10 X 2 tons & 16 X 3 Tons situated at different berths to achieve better load/discharge output.

Average load/discharge rate achieved with SHIPS cranes at this port is about 4000 to 7000 MT up to 10000 MT or sometimes even more depends on loading/discharging arrangements made by the stevedores and their handling agents and also depend on various factors like cargo type, clearance of the cargo from the wharf, proper arrangements of storage etc. 5 to 12 CBM grabs are normally used to achieve this load/discharge rate.

Port release labour gangs in accordance with the arrangements made by the shippers or receivers for loading/discharging operation. Normally Port allowed 4/5 gangs, which depends on No. of hooks available for cargo operation and also subject to gear conditions.
