Mundra port in Gujarat handles 5,300-TEU in July 2023

IN July 2023, the Mundra port in Gujarat, which is owned by the Adani Group, achieved a significant milestone by handling over 5,300 TEU, reports the Press Trust of India.

This surpasses the pre-Cyclone Biparjoy levels, which were around 4,900 TEU, as confirmed by the Adani Group in a recent statement.

The Mundra Port, operated by Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd (APSEZ), holds the distinction of being India's largest integrated transport utility.

Notably, the port's rail handling of TEU also exceeded expectations, reaching an average of 5,300 TEU in July.

The port faced challenges when Cyclone Biparjoy hit, leading to unavoidable operational downtime lasting six days.

However, despite this disruption, the port demonstrated resilience, achieving a commendable year-on-year growth rate of 4.4 per cent in container handling during Q1 of FY24.

Mundra port is a critical gateway to the north and central regions of India and is the largest container-handling port in the country.

In FY23, it successfully handled more than 6.6 million TEU, showcasing its significance in the nation's trade and transportation.

Looking ahead, the port is set to further expand its capacity with the commissioning of a new berth,
