Port of Felixstowe named 'Best Container Terminal in Europe'

17 May 2013/Categories: Industry News

Senior figures at Hutchison Ports have spoken of their delight after the firm's Port of Felixstowe scooped a prestigious award.

The port was named the Best Container Terminal in Europe at the 27th Annual Asian Freight & Supply Chain Awards, which was recently held in Beijing.

Organisers of the event said the accolade was handed to the Suffolk-based terminal in recognition of its excellent quality of service and levels of productivity.

Clemence Cheng - chief executive officer at Hutchison Ports - thinks Felixstowe's superb location and range of transport options by road, rail and sea cannot be matched.

"While this award recognises our achievements to date, we will continue to improve on the level of customer service that has made Port of Felixstowe the Port of Britain," he remarked.

The port is undergoing significant improvement work, with new rail-mounted gantry cranes being installed in order to boost the overall capacity at the site.
