A large number of deep-sea carriers making use of this depot allowing these companies to reduce the number of “empty” shipments so that containers are used more efficiently and sustainably. This improved efficiency offers the further advantage of reducing transportation costs for the local exporter.

The depot allows for optimum deployment of incoming containers from these carriers. Once arrived, the import containers are cleaned and inspected (Pre Trip Inspection) enabling them to be deployed for export again after inspection.
