CICT named Best Container Terminal of its capacity in Asia for 6th successive year


Colombo International Container Terminals (CICT) has been crowned the Best Container Terminal in Asia in the Under 4 million TEUs category for the sixth consecutive year, in just seven full years since it commenced full operations in mid-2014.The announcement of CICT’s prestigious win on a global platform was made at the 2022 Asian Freight, Logistics and Supply Chain (AFLAS) annual awards gala hosted at the JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong by Asia Cargo News.

CICT, which is managed by China Merchants Port Holdings (CMPort), beat three other shortlisted finalists in its category – DaChan Bay Terminals and Fuzhou International Container Terminal of China and the Manila International Container Terminal in the Philippines – to win the AFLAS award that recognises the top global players in the cargo, logistics and supply chain sectors.

Commenting on this noteworthy achievement, CICT CEO Jack Huang said: “CICT has been consistently increasing its throughput and continuously optimising operation processes to enhance efficiency amidst the global challenges to the shipping industry. These include soaring operating costs, global port congestions, obstacles due to COVID-19 and the precarious local economic climate. We are most delighted to win this award once again as it reaffirms to our customers, stakeholders and the country that CICT is continuing to exceed expectations and is contributing most significantly to the image and the growth of the Port of Colombo. This award is a tribute to all the hard work and commitment of employees at every level at CICT.”
