The expansion of Colombo port capacity is aimed at helping exporters, importers and value added service providers with possible greater contribution for the GDP.

The expansion project of the south harbour will more than double the capacity of the Port of Colombo in container handling services and will have a positive impact on the export/import and value adding service industry and also to the south Asian shippers at large with more efficient transhipment services and connectivity.

The shipping community believes that any manufacturing organization or a distribution/trading company will benefit, with the new development as it will add much needed capacity in both ship handling and cargo handling in Colombo by 2013.
