JN Port’s dredging of the navigational channel to 15 m brings multiple advantages

 

Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) has enhanced its operational efficiency by dredging the navigational channel to 15 metres, thereby enabling it to berth larger vessels that can carry more consignments at a time, it said in an official communiqué.

 

Among the advantages of a deeper channel are allowing the berthing of larger vessels up to 12,500 TEUs, 50 per cent increase in the capacity of vessels that can berth at the port, as well as reduced shipping and handling cost.

 

Besides, it facilitates higher parcel size of cargo, higher productivity at terminals and higher economies of scale, the communiqué added.
