BCT wins Textainer’s ‘Area Depot of the Year Award’


Bay Container Terminal Pvt. Ltd (BCT), a Seahorse Group company and the leading marine freight container depot in India, has once again won the prestigious "Area Depot of the Year Award" for 2016, for its depot at Nhava Sheva. The award was conferred by Textainer Equipment Management, the world’s largest lessor of intermodal containers.


Textainer has a fleet of over 3 million TEUs, including own and managed fleets, leasing to over 400 shipping lines and other lessors.


BCT has empty depots at Nhava Sheva, Chennai, Cochin, Tuticorin, Kolkata and Delhi, all of which enjoy Textainer’s patronage as their nominated depots since over the last two decades.


This is the fourth time that BCT’s Mumbai depot has won this coveted award. The Delhi and Chennai depots have also won such awards earlier on a number of occasions.


While announcing BCT as the winner of this prestigious award, Textainer gave the following criteria in the citation:


The award is for excellent service in the following key areas:


* Depot Quality Control


* Estimating Accuracy


* Repair Cycle Turnaround


* Maintenance and Repair Cost Control


* Administration and Reporting


* Response to Special Requests


* Communications


* Overall Support of Textainer


A plaque of this coveted award was presented by Mr Roshan Panday, Area Manager, Textainer, Durban, to the depot at a function organised on May 18, 2017.


This news will be announced by Textainer in their quarterly company magazine, which is distributed to all their customers worldwide.


Another feather in BCT’s cap is that Textainer will also reduce audit frequency for the depot, showing confidence in BCT depots’ reliability, and ensure expeditious payments.


BCT is headed by Chairman Capt. Somesh Batra, with General Manager Mr Anil Kudtarkar in charge of Mumbai operations.


BCT has been in the depot business for over a quarter century, having the distinction of being the only depot organisation with pan-India presence, providing quality service to almost all international container leasing companies, leading international shipping lines and a variety of NVOCCs.


Being ISO 9001:2008 certified, BCT, the only such depot organisation in India, has an impeccable service record for quality, service, corporate governance and ethical business conduct, emphasised a release.
