VICTORIA International Container Terminal was the winner of the Lloyd’s List Asia Pacific Award for Excellence in Port Management and Infrastructure.
Based at Webb Dock, the judges noted VICT had captured 25% market share and had “positively disrupted the market” by offering more stevedoring competition.
VICT was described as having “been at the forefront of innovation and technology and is the first fully automated container terminal in Australia”.
“VICT has adopted an holistic business approach, streamlining its landside operations to provide greater benefits to shipside operations. With continuous investment in technology, people and community, VICT’s fully automated container terminal delivers safer, consistent, predictable and accurate operations,” the judges noted.
“VICT serves the world’s leading shipping lines, always operating with its customers in mind and adding value throughout the supply chain.”
The Judges felt that the terminal’s commitment to delivering “safer, consistent, predictable and accurate operations deserved recognition this year”.
“VICT is proud of the milestones it has achieved and to receive this award,” a spokesperson said.
The awards were held at the Shangri-La Hotel in Singapore.
