APM Terminals Mumbai Exceeds Record 2 Million TEUs In 2018; First Indian Container Terminal To Cross The Milestone
APM Terminals Mumbai has become the first Indian container terminal to handle more than 2 million TEUs (Twenty-Foot Equivalent Units) in a calendar year. This is also a first for the terminal since it was commissioned in 2006. “I am very proud of all our employees, contractors and frontline workforce who have all worked as a team to achieve this record performance. I am especially happy that this record has been achieved by ensuring safe operations at all times”, explained Mr. Ravi Gaitonde, COO, APM Terminals Mumbai.
Mr. Gaitonde further added, “I would like to express my sincere gratitude to all our Customers and the Trade for their support. I would also like to thank the Management and Staff of JNPT, JNCH (Customs House) and CISF for their unstinted support.”
Supported by growing containerised global import-export trade volumes, APM Terminals Mumbai expects to maintain the growth momentum in the coming years. The terminal has embraced digitisation to keep up with rapidly-changing trade dynamics and increased efficiency in support of the Government of India’s Ease-of-Doing-Business initiative.
