Mundra Port, owned by the Adani Group, has reached a significant milestone by managing 16.1 million metric tonnes of cargo in October. This achievement marks a historic high for any Indian port, according to the Adani Group’s statement.
As the largest port in India, Mundra Port has had a remarkable year so far, handling a total of 102 million metric tonnes of cargo. This represents a notable 9 percent growth compared to the previous year’s figures and demonstrates the port’s efficiency.
Moreover, the port accomplished this milestone in an impressive 210 days, surpassing its own record set last year, which took 231 days to achieve. Mundra Port’s consistent growth extends to its container, liquid, and gas handling, all witnessing double-digit year-on-year increases.
In addition, the port recorded another achievement by managing 4.2 million twenty-foot equivalent units (TEUs) of containers in just 203 days, a notable improvement from the previous fiscal year’s performance.
Mundra Port’s progress is further underscored by its expansion into new cargo types, including Hydrolysis Pi Gas (HPG). In 2023, the port welcomed over 2,480 ships and efficiently serviced more than 11,500 rakes. This remarkable growth reflects the port’s status as a vital hub for India’s trade and commerce.
