Indian terminal breaks regional record
APM Terminals Mumbai has become the first Indian container terminal to handle more than 2 million TEUs (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) in a calendar year.
The record is also a first for the terminal since it was commissioned in 2006.
“I am very proud of all our employees, contractors and frontline workforce who have all worked as a team to achieve this record performance. I am especially happy that this record has been achieved by ensuring safe operations at all times”, explained Mr. Ravi Gaitonde, COO, APM Terminals Mumbai.
Mr. Gaitonde further added: “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all our Customers and the Trade for their support. I would also like to thank the Management and Staff of JNPT, JNCH (Customs House) and CISF for their unstinted support.”
Supported by growing containerised global import-export trade volumes, APM Terminals Mumbai expects to maintain the growth momentum in the coming years.
The terminal has embraced digitisation to keep up with rapidly-changing trade dynamics and increased efficiency in support of the Government of India’s Ease-of-Doing-Business initiative.
