New terminal software slows Felixstowe to 80pc of what it was
Date:2018-07-16 Readers:
THE Port of Felixstowe, the UK's big container port owned by Hong Kong’s Hutchison Port Holdings, continues to be frustrated by its new nGen terminal operating system as productivity slows to 80 per cent of what it was before.

"We recognise that performance is not good enough. Vessel and rail loading performance remain below the targets. We are working to reduce rail misses," an unidentified port official told American Shipper.

Quayside volumes last week totalled 66,000 TEU. Nearly 5,000 containers were loaded to rail and more than 21,000 truck haulers were serviced, the port said, adding that the average hauler turnaround time stabilized at 46 minutes, said the report.

Said Felixstowe Port Users Association chairman Jason Flowers: "If there is a plus point to this, I do believe that once the errors have been fixed, the system should improve throughput."

Meanwhile, a new area of empty storage will be opened at the port behind berths 8 and 9. The new yard will provide capacity for an additional 4,200 TEU of empty storage and will facilitate faster loading of empties to outbound vessels, the Port Said.

Felixstowe is served by 26 cellular container services connecting it to regions outside Britain, 21 of which sail to regions outside North Europe, according to BlueWater Reporting.
