The Hambantota International Port (HIP) had a busy week with 6 RORO ships calling at the port, discharging 18,288 vehicles of which 16, 830 were for transshipment and 1, 458 were for local agencies. The discharging operations for these vessels were carried out simultaneously. 

The vessels were from the shipping lines Hoegh, NYK and Glovis—all of which have terminal service agreements (TSA) with HIP. The port recently reached its 1 million metric tonnes (MT) benchmark for 2019 with volumes from RO-RO, bulk and liquid cargo sectors.
