Recent reductions in vessel related charges, increases in free time for direct port deliveries (DPD) and direct port exports (DPE), streamlining of road access, cuts in short haul rail charges by Indian Railways and the development of an empty container depot inside the Port area are just some of the initiatives being taken by stakeholders towards this objective.”

P Raveendran, Chairman, Chennai Port Trust, said, “PSA Chennai’s progress in recent years in delivering excellent service quality is an integrated part of Chennai Port’s offerings, and supports our long-term commitment to sustainable operations. We compliment the PSA Chennai team on setting this new operational record and in surpassing their previous productivity records.”
