APM Terminals (APMT) Mumbai (Gateway Terminals India – GTI) has resulted as the top-performing terminal in India for the 64th consecutive month.
This was revealed in the January 2023 ranking published by NICDC Logistics Data Services.
APMT Mumbai said it achieved the accolade due to its combination of high volumes and low vessel dwell times, despite having the highest volumes of any gateway terminal in India.
“At GTI, our people are our most important asset. Their commitment towards adopting our Way of Working creates an environment of continuous improvement focused on delivering the best-in-class customer experience,” commented Sunay Mukherjee, Chief Operating Officer at GTI.

APMT Mumbai is committed to reducing vessel dwell time and aims to reduce the time spent by vessels at port by more than 20 per cent compared to previous years.
The terminal’s approach to continuous improvement has already resulted in a reduction in dwell times by over 7 per cent between December 2022 and January 2023, according to APMT.
“We have set the bar high, because we know that – especially in challenging times ahead – our customers need to unlock new opportunities to keep growing,” said APM Terminals CEO, Keith Svendsen.
“And by reducing port stays across our terminals, we are unlocking new opportunities to save time, increase.”
Last month, GTI temporarily closed down its Berth 1 to continue its Fit for Future project.
According to APMT, the project includes massive infrastructure upgrades that will see the terminal increase its volume capacity by 10 per cent, to 2.8 million TEU.
