Dry Cargo International reports in February 2018 on Riga Universal Terminal’s increase in performance using the Containerised Bulk Handling solution with the RAM Revolver®
Back in November 2017 we revealed DCi’s article on Riga Universal Terminals Ltd (RUT) becoming the first port in Europe to introduce the Containerised Bulk Handling system for the movement of wood pellets on large dry bulk ships.
Since then, a new report by DCi in February 2018 shows that RUT have optimized the terminals expenses and increased their performance since the bulk handling technology was introduced.
Antis Šulte, RUT Trade and Business Development Director said to Dry Cargo International “By introducing the containerised cargo handling we have become more competative and can better adjust to customer requirements“. Following the general tendancy in cargo carriage, dry bulk ships handled at our terminal are becoming even larger. By Means of a new technology, we are able to ensure fast and effective loading of these large ships”.
By applying the new technology Antis Šulte further added “We are able to load dry bulk and containers at the same pier, using one portal-frame lift. It allows it to quickly organize its work at the terminalk and quickly handle any type of ship”.
