Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal (JNPCT) handled 14,29,936 Twenty Foot Equivalent Unit (TEU) of cargo till March 7 as compared to 14,29,277 TEU, registering a growth of 7.6%.

The Ministry of Shipping said in a statement, "JNPCT, one of the four terminals at JNPort, which is directly managed by Port authority, handled 14,29,936 TEU till March 7, surpassing last year record of 14,29,277 TEU and registering 7.6% YoY growth in cargo throughput.”

In a major attempt to rise above conventional standards and achieve high benchmarks, the Port owned container terminal has taken series of measures for improving productivity parameters leading to record achievement, it said.

It said that "For the month of Feb'17 the berth productivity was 73.37 moves/hr recording 13% growth over LY avg of 64.98 moves/hr.”

Deployment of adequate number of cranes according to the parcel/window size and the Initiative of 'Identifying Champions' proved very effective in motivating individuals and the team in achieving the overall terminal target.

It said that "As a result, there has been drastic reduction of shift change time thus helping in increasing the crane productivity from the regular 16 moves/hr to 20 moves/hr and efforts are on to further improve to 22 moves/hr for faster handling of containers.”
