Kochi gets a direct service ship to the European ports

When MV Lahore Express, a Hong Kong flagged vessel got berthed at the International Container Transhipment Terminal (ICTT) , it became the first ever weekly direct service vessel between Kochi and the European ports. The vessel that will make service calls to the major ports in Europe such as Genoa, Tilbury, Hamburg, Rotterdam and Le Havre, will ensure a major a boost to the trade and commercial activities in Kochi.

The commencement of this service from ICTT will offer a faster transit option that will considerably   reduce the supply chain cost, making Kochi one of the most  important ports in the country. With this facility, the South Indian trading fraternity in Bangalore, Tirupur, Salem and Coimbatore among others can  directly export goods to Europe from ICTT on a weekly basis without having to  rely on the expensive option of transshipment facility. ICIT not only offers the shortest  transit time but also the best rates and facilities at par  with the best international ports. ICTT,which was set up on BOT basis by the DP World will play a significant role in making Kochi a trading hub of international standards, in the days ahead.
