India - Chennai

Overview

Situated on the Coromandel Coast of South-East India, the port of Chennai is strategically located and well connected with major parts of the world and is today one of the major hub ports on the Indian subcontinent.

DP World Chennai, currently the only container terminal within the port, has invested to develop a state of the art terminal to cater for growing local demand. The terminal is capable of handling fifth generation vessels up to 6,400 TEU. With the introduction of direct services to China, West Africa, Europe and US, DP World Chennai can service the full export-import trade in Chennai and its hinterland.

DP World Chennai has maintained its focus on exceeding customer needs and anticipating future trends to not only facilitate but also act as a driver for containerization and industrial growth in South India. A container freight station, with a covered area of 6500sqm, operates within the port offering such services as inspection, LCL de-stuffing and delivery of import cargo. The presence of the CFS within the port premises enables prompt and convenient services to importers as well as passengers including swift transshipment of LCL cargo to Inland Container Destinations such as Bangalore, Hyderabad, Cochin, Pondicherry and other locations.

Like all other terminals within DP World's portfolio in the subcontinent, DP World Chennai is ISPS-compliant and certified to ISO 9001, ISO 14001 and OHSAS 18001 standards.
