Among the four terminals under JNPT, APM Terminals handled 9.90 lakh TEUs, up 11.6 per cent, while DP World too handled higher cargo at 6.25 lakh TEUs as compared to 5.94 lakh TEUs in the comparative period of last year.

Total liquid cargo handled rose by 12 per cent at 36.03 lakh tonnes as compared to 32.14 lakh tonnes.

We are thankful that the trade has shown great faith and JNPT has continued its uptick in performance.
