CICT named Best Container Terminal of its capacity in Asia


Colombo International Container Terminals (CICT) has been crowned Best Container Terminal in Asia in the Under four million TEUs category for the sixth consecutive year, in just seven full years since it commenced full operations in mid-2014, a spokesman said.

 The announcement of CICT’s prestigious win on a global platform was made at the 2022 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) annual awards gala hosted at the JW Marriott Hotel, Hong Kong by Asia Cargo News, he added.

 CICT, which is managed by China Merchants Port Holdings (CMPort), beat three other shortlisted finalists in its category – DaChan Bay Terminals and Fuzhou International Container Terminal of China and the Manila International Container Terminal in the Philippines – to win the AFLAS award that recognises the top global players in the cargo, logistics and supply chain sectors.

 Commenting on this noteworthy achievement, CICT CEO Jack Huang said, “CICT has been consistently increasing its throughput and continuously optimising operation processes to enhance efficiency amidst the global challenges to the shipping industry.

These include soaring operating costs, global port congestion, obstacles due to Covid-19 and the precarious local economic climate.”
