MELL’s ships make maiden calls at Tibar Bay port

Mariana Express Lines (MELL), a subsidiary of Pacific International Lines (PIL), has announced that two of its vessels, Kota Dunia and Selatan Damai, made successful maiden calls at the new Tibar Bay Port over two days from 14 September 2022 to 16 September 2022, to support the operational trials of this new deepwater port.

This new development, built in compliance with globally recognised environmental standards, aims to deliver performance and productivity which are comparable with the largest seaports in the world.

Over the two-day test phase, the efficiency of the digital operating systems of the terminal shone through as the port handled nearly 1,000 containers on board both ships.

With new optimised port call practices, the port call process in future is expected to be even shorter and more efficient, thereby bringing savings while reducing carbon emissions for shipping lines.
