Three Harbour Mobile Cranes capable of discharging more than 50,000 tonnes per day unloaded the cargo at the port.

They first made it to the news back in 2010 when they facilitated the transportation of a large shipment of vehicles comprising jeeps, cars, and motorbikes. This shipment was a gift from the then Government of India to the then Government of Maldives. From that moment on, they have been crossing milestones after milestones.

“To begin with, we are so glad to have played a significant role to help attain this remarkable feat. Although this is not our first newsworthy achievement, we keep cherishing such moments with pride as Macsons Shipping trail blazes itself to greater heights moving from strength to strength,” says Roshan Miranda, Director of Macsons Shipping.

Congratulations to Macsons Shipping and wishing them the best for their future endeavors!
