    Terminal operating company QTerminals has reached major milestones by handling two million TEU and five million tonnes of general cargo by the end of October 2018, three times more compared to June 2017.

    The company, set up by Qatar Navigation (Milaha) and Qatar Ports Management Company (Mwani Qatar), explained that the surge in volume was achieved in record time with operations at Hamad Port only starting as of October 2016.

    “This important achievement is a clear indication of the status which Hamad Port has gained in such a short time. Its great success lies in having diversified and expanded its business base,” Jassim Saif Ahmed al-Sulaiti, Minister of Transport and Communications and Chairman of QTerminals, said. He added that the port “is playing a significant role in meeting the needs of local markets as well as servicing the country’s major projects.”

    Neville Bisset, CEO of QTerminals, explained that 2018 “has been a transformative year for the port management and operations industry.”

    He added that QTerminals’ objective is to optimize capacity and maintain the highest service levels, thereby driving the expansion and diversification of trading partners “for the benefit of Qatar’s economy and trade.”

    In the first nine months of 2018, the Port of Colombo witnessed its highest ever growth in transhipment container traffic, with numbers up by 19.4% year-on-year to 4.207M TEU

    The figures, which build on the impressive H1 2018 numbers for transhipment containers, seem to reflect the better conditions for carriers following the conclusion of the common berthing deal between the various terminal operators in March.

    The latest figures were revealed by state-owned Jaya Container Terminal (JCT), operated by Sri Lanka Ports Authority (SLPA). JCT handled 1,445,424 TEU in transhipment in Q1-Q3 2018, up 23.3% on the 1,172,542 TEU it handled in the same period in 2017.

    SLPA says that it expects the Port of Colombo to handle 7M TEU in calendar 2018.

    Philippine terminal operator International Container Terminal Services (ICTSI) witnessed a rise in its earnings supported by an improvement in volumes in the peeriod ended September 30, 2018.

    For the third quarter of the year, revenue from port operations increased nine percent from USD 314.6 million to USD 344 million, while net income surged by 22 percent from USD 45.7 million to USD 55.6 million.

    For the first nine months of 2018, the company’s revenue from port operations was at USD 1 billion, increasing by 10 percent over the USD 918.3 million reported in the same period in 2017.

    Net income reached USD 153.3 million, rising by three percent compared to the USD 149.3 million earned in the same period last year mainly due to strong operating income from organic terminals.

    The increase was tapered by the drag from new terminals and a USD 7.5 million non-recurring gain on the termination of the sub-concession agreement in Nigeria in the second quarter of 2017.

    For the quarter ended September 30, 2018, total throughput was six percent higher at 2.43 million TEUs compared to 2.29 million TEUs in 2017.

    ICTSI handled consolidated volume of 7.15 million TEUs in the first nine months of 2018, five percent more than the 6.83 million TEUs reported in the same period in 2017. The increase in volume was primarily due to improvement in trade activities at most of the company’s terminal locations and the contribution of new terminals in Lae and Motukea in Papua New Guinea, and Melbourne, Australia.
