The 10,034 TEU MV Tanya calls KFTL

September 16, 2016 by adminKFTL

It was a bleak and rainy morning as KFTL welcomed the wife of Jamaica’s Governor General; Lady ALLEN,  members of Women in Maritime Association Caribbean (WiMAC) and the MV Tanya on their first visit to the terminal. So warm was the welcome reception that it seemed to blow the rain away. The visit occurred on the same day that Captain Dean took over this eight-month-old vessel en route from Cartagena and to Caucedo. A formidable structure capable of holding 10,034 TEUs of cargo, the Neo Panamax CMA CGM Tanya is named for Tanya SAADE ZEENNY, Executive Director for the France-based CMA CGM Group.

The host of the visit, Kingston Freeport Terminal Ltd, took over the responsibility to operate and develop the container terminal since July of 2016. To date KFTL, under the leadership of CEO Olivier TRETOUT, has managed to improve the productivity of the terminal and significantly increased the number of vessels of various sizes taking advantage of their services. This has resulted in KFTL becoming one of the leading terminals in productivity, of all the terminals at which CMA CGM vessels call.

Members of the KFTL management team that went on board included: Karen SUTHERLAND – CFO, Dianne GOBAN – HR Manager and Kelly GREENAWAY – Legal Counsel. At a small reception which followed the tour the CEO Mr. Olivier TRETOUT joined the women of WiMAC, and staff of CMA CGM and KFTL in welcoming Lady ALLEN and the other visitors to the terminal and adding his support to the efforts of the organization. In his comments, Mr. TRETOUT affirmed that KFTL holds high, the ideals of gender equality and the empowerment of the entire workforce.
