Navayuga breaks though 0.5M TEU barrier

The landmark container was handled on SSL KUTCH


Navayuga Container Terminal (formerly known as Krishnapatam Port Container Terminal), has witnessed stellar volume growth of almost 9-fold increase in the 5-year period starting from a modest 58,577 TEU in FY 2013-14.


Commenting on the development, Anil Yendluri, Director & CEO of Krishnapatnam Port Co Ltd. Said: “NCT has taken giant strides in getting established as a Transshipment Hub on the East Coast of India and we are working towards making it the Hub port in the Bay of Bengal.”


Jithendra Nimmagadda, Chief Operating Officer, NCT commented: “Reaching this milestone would not have been possible without the strong partnerships forged with Shipping Lines wherein by working together we assure the speed, transparency, and fluidity our Shippers have come to expect from NCT.


We are further expanding our terminal capacity from 1.2M TEU to 2M TEU by the end of 2019 to be ahead of the demand.”


FY 2018-19 marked several developments at Navayuga Container Terminal:

  • 5 new e-RTGs getting commissioned
  • Increase in yard capacity to 5,000 ground slots
  • Reefer points were increased to 200 nos.
  • Development of 30 acres of off-dock Stuffing & de-stuffing zone close to the container terminal
  • Permission to handle unshredded scrap imports

Vinita Venkatesh, Director (Marketing) NCT, said: “This milestone paves the way to achieve 1M TEU in the near future by providing customer-centric services."
