Leading port operator Hutchison Ports Thailand (HPT), recently announced that the company hit another milestone with the handling of their 20 millionth TEU container since the commencement of operations in 2002.

Managing Director, Stephen Ashworth and the company’s employees recently celebrated the achievement at an employee event. Mr. Ashworth said, “This is a significant milestone for HPT and the Hutchison Ports group and has only been made possible by the hard work and professionalism of our employees. It is a proud moment for all of us and I would like to congratulate everyone concerned on this very special occasion”.

Mr. Ashworth further explained that HPT’s existing Laem Chabang Terminals A2, A3, C1 and C2 are already operating at close to capacity and the first phase of HPT’s D Terminal will commence operations by mid-2018. The quay and yard cranes at Terminal D will be operated entirely by remote control technology which will improve berth and yard safety and lead to higher levels of productivity for shipping lines, shippers and consignees.
