Belawan boxport celebrates contracts with six lines

Jakarta: Belewan International Container Terminal (BICT), Sumatra’s largest box facility, has received an enormous fillip with six lines – Maersk, MSC, Evergreen, OOCL, K Line and Hub Line – concluding a service level agreement (SLA) with the terminal’s operator Pelindo I, guaranteeing slots and calls at the terminal.

“This agreement will help us to better capture the container market along the Strait of Malacca that is predicted to reach around 51 million teu this year and is expected to continue rising in the future,” spokesman Muhammad Eriansyah told The Jakarta Post.

BICT is set to kick off a terminal expansion plan at the end of this year.  [10/10/13]
