Port of Jawaharlal Nehru

Port of Jawaharlal Nehru

Jawaharlal Nehru Port, also known as Nhava Sheva port, is the largest container port in India. East of Mumbai, in the state of Maharashtra, JNPT handles the majority of India’s containerized trade, and is the focal point of long-haul calls to and from the emerging market economy. DP World’s “futuristic” Nhava Sheva (India) Gateway Terminal (NSIGT) achieved 6,017 TEUs of combined exports and imports in the course of about 33 hours when it serviced MSC Perle, recording a gross berth productivity of 141.14 moves per hour, DP World Nhava Sheva officials told JOC.com.

The 13,092-TEU MSC Perle has been deployed in Mediterranean Shipping Company’s independent Himalaya Express (HEX) service between India and Europe. The weekly HEX service operates with eight 13,000-TEU vessels on a full port rotation of Colombo, Nhava Sheva (JNPT), Mundra, King Abdullah, Gioia Tauro, Felixstowe, Hamburg, Antwerp, Le Havre, and back to Colombo, Sri Lanka.

The addition of a weekly intra-Asia call from HMM has significantly brightened the growth outlook for PSA International’s new terminal at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), India’s busiest container gateway. HMM’s independent, six-vessel China-India Express (CIX) Service debuted at BMCT with a call from the 8,562-TEU Hyundai Loyalty on Jan. 2, further highlighting JNPT’s potential for intra-Asia trade.
