Three more quayside gantry cranes, one of the most necessary container handling equipment, arrived at the Chittagong Port last week.
Trial operations of another three delivered in August started the same day.
The six were procured from Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industries Company Ltd at Tk 344.92 crore.
The Chittagong Port Authority is set to get another four from the Chinese company, all for New Mooring Container Terminal.
Port users have long been urging for acquiring the cranes to increase container throughput, a measure of the number of containers handled over a period of time.
