Maharashtra to get two new dry ports

The Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust plans to commission two dry ports at Wardha and Jalna in Maharashtra by June 2019. The Jalna port will come up close to Aurangabad, with an annual capacity of 20,000 twenty foot equivalent units (TEUs).

The Wardha dry port will come up near Nagpur, with another 20,000 TEU annual capacity. Around ₹400 crore will be spent on each of the ports. JNPT has also decided to start similar dry ports in Nashik and Sangli. While Wardha will cater to Nagpur, Jalna will be beneficial to Aurangabad and the proposed port at Sangli will help Kolhapur.
