The Cochin Port Trust has installed a modern electronic weighing machine of 100 tonnes capacity at its container freight station (CFS) on Willingdon Island, to facilitate quick clearance of import and export boxes. It was commissioned on May 19 by Dr K. N. Raghavan, Commissioner of Customs, in the presence of Mr Paul Antony, IAS, Chairman of Cochin Port Trust, Dr C. Unnikrishnan Nair, Traffic Manager, Mr Saroj Kumar Das, CME, Mr K. G. Nath, Financial Advisor, and Mr Prakash Iyyer, Mr C. D. Nandakumar and Mr Abraham Philip, Trustees of the Port.

The equipment will facilitate the weighing of all types of containers (including 40 footers) at concessional rates, thereby making the CFS the only facility providing a range of logistics services, which presently include storage of refrigerated containers and dangerous goods containers, and clearance of unaccompanied containers of NRIs, in addition to the conventional functions, a release highlighted.
