Fiji Ports Terminal Limited has invested $2.5 million in purchasing six terminal tractors.

The tractors were purchased from an Australian company called Daysworth to improve daily ports operations.

Ports Terminal Chairman Hasmukh Patel said for the last two years they have been working on improving the ports services by getting quality and good equipment.

“These terminal tractors will be operational purely at the wharf, at their terminals and they will bring about efficiency and improvements by re-engineering the processes here at the wharfs.

“So that we are able to serve ships that berth, unload or load containers quickly,” he said.

Daysworth International Managing Director Ivan Vodanovich said his company has trained local technicians for the new terminal tractors for the long life and quality performance of the equipment.

“Since the partnership with Sri Lankan companies I believe FPTL has the potential to have a bigger International success in the region.

“I’ve been working with the FPTL for a while now and within six to 12 months I have noticed enormous improvements,”

Mr Vodanovich added from a technical point of view he believes that FPTL should do more research on projects such as huge investment that was made yesterday.
