Five Port Projects

The multi­purpose cargo berth proposed for the Mumbai Port Trust will handle iron and steel project cargo and automobiles, and will entail a capacity addition of 4.5 MTPA and will benefit industries located in the hinterland.

These projects will also bring in the latest technology and will be state of the art in line with global standards.

These facilities will go a long way in promoting the EXIM trade in the country and would also reduce transaction costs by improving efficiency in handling operations.
