Mumbai's JNPT traffic soars 52.7pc in June to 441,984 TEU
MUMBAI's Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT) container cargo traffic rose 52.78 per cent in June, spiking to 441,984 TEU year on year, reports Mumbai's Construction Week.
JNPT previously handled 289,282 TEU in June 2020. Meanwhile, JNPT handled 88,849 TEU of Inland Container Depot (ICD) traffic from 548 rakes in June, with a 20.1 per cent rail-coefficient during the previous month.
The increase comes on the back of easing lockdown restrictions and acceleration in economic activities amid a waning second Covid scare.
"We are proud to see the efficiency of the entire JNPT ecosystem improving, resulting in increasing numbers in container handling, overall container traffic, and throughput even during a pandemic," said JNPT chairman Sanjay Sethi.
