The country’s leading port JNPT has handled 3,80,384 twenty-foot equivalent units of cargo in September, which is 95 per cent of the cargo handled in the same month a year ago.

As compared to August, the growth in throughput was 7.8 per cent, indicating early signs of recovery which is very significant during the ongoing pandemic that has affected businesses across the country.

The JNPT said that various initiatives like direct port entry and delivery, internal terminal rail handling operations and internal terminal transportation have helped in reducing the dwell time and with the installation of scanners and the centralised parking plaza being fully operational by this month, the efficiency of the port will further improve.
