Kribi Conteneurs Terminal gets five new yard gantries
Kribi Conteneurs Terminal received five new yard gantries on May 10.
May 11, 2021: Kribi Conteneurs Terminal (KCT) received five new yard gantries on May 10. With a 50-tonne lifting capacity, the new equipment will further boost the growth in traffic at the Port of Kribi. In 2020, KCT posted a 56.27 percent increase in handling volumes.
The five Konecranes gantries provide KCT with additional handling capacities at the Kribi container terminal. They will optimise the use of the container storage park and improve processing times for trucks unloading and loading containers. The new equipment strengthens KCT’s policy on operational excellence to the benefit of partners, ship owners, road transport firms, and users of the Port of Kribi.
After the delivery of a Gottwald mobile crane on April 11, Kribi Conteneurs Terminal is pursuing its investment plan with the new yard gantries. The company is committed alongside the Autonomous Port to boosting the attractiveness of the Kribi port for Cameroon, Chad and the Central African Republic.
