The Port Elizabeth Car Terminal is continuing to break records despite the tough, volatile economic environment in South Africa. August 2019 was momentous month as the Car Terminal handled one of the biggest loads in one vessel, the Glovis Supreme vessel singly handled around 4 500 volumes.
It was the first time that one vessel handled has loaded so many units, the last vessel that broke a handling was in February 2019, Glovis Sonic with 34 81 export units.
The increase in volumes is being attributed ti increased demand by the market.
