The port has registered handling of 160,649 TEUs (Twenty Equivalent Unit) of cumulative imports and exports containers at its two terminals, the Karachi International Container Terminal (KICT) and Pakistan International Container Terminal (PICT) surpassing the previous handling of 156,254 TEUs that it handled in the month of January 2015, said a statement here.

The breakup shows that KICT handled 45,486 TEUs of import containers and 44,592 TEUs of exports containers, while the PICT handled 38,213 TEUs of import containers and 30,920 TEUs of export containers respectively from 31 and 36 vessels arrived at the two terminals.
Handling of containers more than their existing capacities reflects the efficient handling operations of both the private terminals.
