MV. Epiphania is discharging 68,670 metric tons of Soybeans at Berth No. 12/13, East Wharf at Karachi Port.
It may be noted that on 12 th May, 2019 during 24 hours period vessel discharged 8,020 metric tons of seeds. This is the highest / record discharge ever achieved at Karachi Port during Ramadan. Furthermore, overall the ship is discharging well and it is expected that there will be dispatch earnings for the importers. It is pertinent to mention here that since there is FAP Terminal for bulk cargoes at Port Bin Qasim and quite a few of the mills i.e. end users are located at Port Bin Qasim therefore these cargoes will always be first option for Port Bin Qasim.
In the past occasionally seed ships have been diverted to Karachi Port due to heavy congestion at FAP Terminal but results at Karachi Port have not been satisfactory.
