Operations at DP World Nhava Sheva unhindered by crises
DP World Nhava Sheva has managed to maintain normal operational efficiency at the port despite “natural and manmade crises”, according to a press release from parent company DP World.
The terminal, which is already well-known for its operational efficiency maintained normal import and export activities during a recent eight day strike that coincided with heavy rains that washed away a crucial part of the railway line leading to Pipavav Port.
DP World Nhava Sheva “laid open their new facility – NSIGT for vessels to berth and handle their EXIM Cargo” when RTG operators at the neighbouring terminal went on strike, the company said in a release.
“At DP World Nhava Sheva, we believe at not stopping until the work is done,” said Ajay Singh, CEO, DP World Nhava Sheva. “At this point of crisis faced by the port, we galvanized our resources and offered our best support to the trade.”
“We will continue to think and experiment with new processes to ensure that DP World Nhava Sheva is always the Port of Choice and the most sought after trade gateway,” he added.
The 330m terminal project adds 800,000-teu in capacity to the region and is able to accommodate some of the largest vessels calling at the Jawaharlal Nehru Port.
The wharf is equipped with the largest and most technologically advanced quay cranes and to ease congestion on the roadways leading to the port, DP World Nhava Sheva recently inaugurated a 6 hectare parking facility at Sonari Village for the truck drivers.
