The logistic subsidiary Logiventures of the Hayleys Group, upon clearing its first shipment of 850 vehicles at the Magam Ruhunupura Mahinda Rajapaksa Port in Hambantota has begun offering comprehensive automotive logistics solutions.
The 850 vehicles were brought by the NYK Line vessel Cygnus Leader and the Logiventures has made arrangements to work closely with NYK Line, to expand its engagement with the automotive industry in Sri Lanka.
A spokesman for the Logivetures said that the company has already ordered more car carrier trailers to supplement its existing fleet and invested in a vehicle transit facility in close proximity to the Hambantota Port to facilitate the clearing, inspection and transportation of vehicles discharged at the Port by roll-on roll-off (Ro-Ro) vessels.

He said that the company is now geared to offer services including documentation & customs clearance of vehicles, inspection, initial transportation from the port to the company’s transit yard, re-inspection of vehicles prior to despatch and transportation by car carrier trailers to Colombo or any location specified by the vehicle importers.(niz)
