Cochin Port Trust is looking forward to find ways for promoting cargo movement to Maldives Port through a regular shipping service. The port is likely to operate a weekly service of a 600 TEU vessel from Kochi to Male. Maldives Male Port handles about 70,000 TEUs annually. Kochi is the nearest port, with only 30 hours sailing. K K Krishanadas, CEO, DP World has said that the port is trying to facilitate regular sailings to Maldives for cargo promotion.
