Port Qasim Authority (PQA) creates history by berthing the largest ever vessel ‘CMA CGM DEBUSSY’ overall length 300.25, beam 40.3m and having capacity of 6600 TEUs of CMA CGM GROUP to call at Qasim International Container Terminal (QICT) at Port Qasim on 10th December 2008. This is a historic event for the shipping industry of Pakistan and would be very beneficial for the enhancement of trade and commerce in the country. By increasing the parameters for handling third generation vessels, Port Qasim has now paved way for all Shipping Companies to induct larger vessels of 300 meters plus LOA to cater for their ever increasing volumes and would eliminate the need for the Shipping Lines to transship their excess cargoes at other transshipment ports resulting in substantial savings in terms of transshipment cost as previously Pakistani Ports could not handle vessels of LOA more than 300 meters. A special mention needs to be given for the management of Port Qasim Authority under the able and dynamic leadership of their present Chairman Mir Afsar Din Talpur who made this historic event possible
