Last year India’s leading port, JN Ports Trust (JNPT), set a new record, handling 5.05 million teu in the calendar year, up from 4.71 million teu in 2017. As such this performance consolidated its position as the only Indian port ranked in the world’s Top 30 container facilities. The JN Port terminal with the biggest throughput was APM Terminals’ GTI facility, with 2.07 million teu, followed by the port authority owned JNPCT, with 1.17 million teu.
In December 2018 JNPT handled 445,000 teu overall. This is the highest volume of containers recorded in a single month at the port and was more than 6% higher than in December 2017.
