Sri Lanka: Insee Cement has signed a memorandum of understanding with the Hambantota International Port Group (HIPG) to ensure the efficient transfer of raw materials to the Galle cement plant via the Hambantota Port. The agreement was signed between Gustavo Navarro, chief executive officer (CEO) of Insee Cement, and Johnson Liu, the CEO of HIPG.
“Insee Cement was Hambantota International Port’s first customer for dry bulk cargo and we greatly appreciate the trust they placed in us. We have worked with them from 2018 and have been able to greatly increase our productivity in handling dry bulk volumes,” said Liu. Navarro added, ““Due to the limitations we have experienced in our previous operations, we couldn’t bring bigger vessels with larger volumes. HIP has been a great business partner for us and the port came up with some creative solutions to get our raw materials delivered efficiently and in a timely manner which made a positive impact on our operation.”
