India’s box traffic grows

The combined volume of containerized shipments processed at India’s 12 state-run ports in April-October 2019 was 5.94 million TEUs, up 2.8% from a year earlier, according to the Indian Ports Association (IPA).

Looking at container throughput by port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port handled 2.975 million TEUs, down 2.1%, while containers to and from Chennai surged 11.8% to 859,000 TEUs. Those to and from Kolkata improved 2.8% to 510,000 TEUs. Container lifting at V.O. Chidambaranar, Cochin and Visakhapatnam were all favorable, totaling 486,000 TEUs, up 13%; 364,000 TEUs, up 10.6% and 301,000 TEUs, up 13.2%, respectively. Deendayal (formerly Kandla) performed very well, at which containers skyrocketed 102.5% to 239,000 TEUs, while those to and from New Mangalore grew a much milder 9.9% to 89,000 TEUs.
