India - Nhava Sheva

Overview

The Port of Nhava Sheva (or Jawaharlal Nehru Port) is India's largest port handling almost half of the country's maritime traffic. The Port of Nhava Sheva, created to add capacity to Mumbai's port, is located on the west coast of India close to the country's commercial capital, Mumbai. DP World Nhava Sheva, India's first privately managed container terminal, is the company's flagship operation in the Subcontinent.

DP World Nhava Sheva links to a wide network of inland container depots (ICD) in Pune, Nagpur, Ahmadabad, Hyderabad, Ludhiana and New Delhi through two sets of railway sidings, which ensure efficient operation. Further the terminal is connected to India's major highway and rail networks, which give access to neighbouring Mumbai and to the hinterland of Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Gujarat, Karnataka and most of North India.

The terminal operates state-of-the art infrastructure and provides a world-class service to its customers. Its productivity is rated amongst the highest in the world and it continuously surpasses its own records in throughput and turnaround times. The seven gates, which control and expedite container flow at the terminal, have proven to be among the terminal's best assets ensuring a smooth continuity of container traffic flow whilst handling some of the highest traffic loads. Future plans include their automation to further improve operational efficiency.
