Marport had reached two milestones in February 2008 - servicing its 10,000th vessel and 6,340,000th TEU. Marport could achieve this success because of the expanded port area, IT and equipment investments, the most notable of those being the purchase of SSG"s for quayside and RTG"s for yard operations.
