APM Terminals Pipavav has welcomed the Hoegh Tracer, one of the world's largest pure car and truck carriers (PCTC), and the largest to ever call on an Indian port. At 14 decks high, the Hoegh Tracer has a capacity of 8,500 vehicles, and loaded 1,700 cars at Pipavav for export delivery on the Hoegh Middle East, India and Africa (MIAF) Service. 'This achievement showcases Pipavav's infrastructure capability and efficiency in handling large car carriers in this important growing market,' said APM Terminals Pipavav Managing Director Keld Pedersen.
APM Terminals Pipavav, in partnership with NYK Auto Logistics (India), opened a dedicated common user integrated RoRo terminal in August 2015, with a capacity of 250,000 vehicles annually. The port is equipped to accommodate 4,500 to 5,000 cars.
