Unmesh Sharad Wagh, Chairman, JNPA says: "We are delighted to share that JNPA has continued its growth trajectory with significant increase in handling TEUs. This quarterly performance is a testament to JNPA's efforts to reduce logistics costs and time by providing efficiency in EXIM and ease of doing business. I must say that this quarter has been very fruitful for JN Port as we also received the cabinet's approval for the mega port project of Vadhvan, which is going to be a game changer for the Indian Maritime sector.

"This project is a catalyst for strengthening economies of scale and transcending the conventional way of port operations in India. We also completed our 35 years of establishment and have been thriving ever since."

The port will comprise nine container terminals, each 1,000 metres long, four multipurpose berths, including the coastal berth, four liquid cargo berths, a Ro-Ro berth, and a Coast Guard berth. The project involves the reclamation of 1,448 hectares of area in the sea and the construction of 10.14 km of offshore breakwater and container/cargo storage areas. The project will create a cumulative capacity of 298 million tonnes per annum, including around 23.2 million TEUs of container handling capacity.

JNPA currently operates five container terminals - NSFT, NSICT, NSIGT, BMCT and APMT, the release added.
