A Yang Ming ship had arrived to the port, planned for execution of unloading along with 3 additional cranes, 2 cranes which were available at the time were also recruited, resulting in a situation in which five cranes have been working on the ship at the same time.
Ashdod Port Company registered record high last week, when operating five cranes on a single ship simultaneously. A Yang Ming ship had arrived to the port, planned for execution of unloading along with 3 cranes. At the same time, two more cranes were available at the port, due to delay of arrival time of another ship. In order to make the working process more efficient, the cranes were also recruited for execution of the work on the Yang Ming ship, creating a situation in which five cranes are working on the ship simultaneously.
The unloading rate of the shipping container was very quick, and to the full satisfaction of the customer. In fact, over 50 port crewmen were working on the ship. The idea of operating five cranes at the same time was initiated by Mr. Moshe Novotai, Head of shipping containers department in Ashdod Port Company and Manager of Eitan terminal.
According to the major general (retired) Ya'akov Raz, Head of Ashdod Port directorate, "thanks to a skilled and dedicated crew, Ashdod Port is the leading port company in Israel in providing services to its customers. I cherish the teams' work, which succeeded in a difficult task, making most efforts in order to ensure, as always, that our clients will receive the quickest, most efficient and best service on the market".
Shuki Sagis, CEO of Ashdod Port Company, noted that "Ashdod Port is founded on efficiency, quickness, and maximal assistance to the client. We make great efforts in order to utilize the resources and crewmen available to us for completion of the work in a short while and in the best way. Ashdod Port Company is an uprising company, and we will continue to provide advanced, uncompromised services to our clients".
