For the six months ended September 30, the company has recorded 23.8 million metric tonnes of cargo, despite a slowdown in April as India introduced the biggest ever lockdown in the world to contain the spread of the deadly disease thus bringing normal functioning to a complete halt.

Rajiv Agarwal, CEO & MD, Essar Ports, said, “We at Essar Ports are proud to be part of the country’s dream of emerging as a self-dependent nation. Our cargo handling performance is an example of how the country is waiting to bounce back on the growth trajectory and move forward. Our terminals have clocked revenue for cargo handling of 23.8 million tonnes for the six months with a growth of 12.5 percent in Q2 FY 21 as compared to Q1 FY 21. We are proud of our people and all other stakeholders to make this possible.”
