GWADAR: Customs Deputy Collector has said that Gwadar port’s terminal is slated to become largely a container terminal after a ship carrying new STS cranes recently docked at the harbour.
The Deputy collector confirmed that the ship, Zhenghua 28, recently brought the cargo. He said the replacement of the installed cranes with the new equipment will further facilitate CPEC-related cargo activity and exports.
The goods declaration for the three cranes has been filed and the STS cranes will be installed within a month. The new cranes are expected to reduce port handling times.
