APM Terminals (APMT) Mumbai established a new record for Indian ports by handling a total of 2.01 million TEU during the fiscal year of 2014-2015.
APMT recently won the ‘Nigerian Safety Award’ in recognition of its efforts to create a terminal safety culture at Lagos Port, Nigeria.
APM Terminals Mumbai is one of three terminals currently operating at Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNPT), India’s largest container port, accounting for 45% of JNPT’s throughput, and approximately 20% of India’s total container traffic.
The deepening of the Mumbai harbour channel in 2014 combined with an increase in the vessel size and container volumes are contributing factors to the growth.
Rizwan Soomar, Chairman of APM Terminals Mumbai, said: “The need of the hour is to ensure we find an acceptable solution with the authorities on the longstanding issue of the tariff that we are allowed to charge at the terminal.”
As part of its continuing efforts to provide a safe working environment to all stakeholders, APM Terminals Mumbai is now in the final stages of completing a container weighing project that will help to assure accurate weight declarations for loaded containers.
