India’s Navayuga Container Terminal (NCT) achieved a milestone as it handled 500,000 TEUs for the first time in a financial year.

The milestone was reached on March 27, with the jubilee TEU being handled on India-flagged containership SSL Kutch.

NCT noted that the milestone was enabled by an almost 9-fold increase in the 5-year period starting from 58,577 TEUs in FY 2013-14.

“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,” Anil Yendluri, Director & CEO, Krishnapatnam Port, commented.

“We are further expanding our terminal capacity from 1.2 million TEUs to 2 million TEUs by the end of 2019 to be ahead of the demand,” Jithendra Nimmagadda, NCT Chief Operating Officer, added.

The previous financial year saw the Navayuga Container Terminal commission five new e-RTGs, increase yard capacity to 5,000 ground slots, and develop 30 acres of off-dock stuffing and de-stuffing zone close to the container terminal.
