Kandla Port Trust crossed the 100-million tonne (mt) mark in cargo handling as at 0700 hrs on March 15, 2017, i.e. 17 days ahead, achieving an increase of over 5% as compared to last year despite the overall sluggish trend.

The total throughput was 100.28 mt as of 7 am on Wednesday. The break-up of the cargo was as follows: Dry cargo - 33.84 mt; Liquid cargo (Kandla) - 12.37 mt; and Liquid cargo (Vadinar) - 54.07 mt.

The major contribution in this increase was crude oil and POL at Vadinar that recorded an increase of around 3.7 mt, more than 1 mt in liquid cargo at Kandla, and about 0.50 mt in other dry cargoes.

As regards dry cargo, there was an increase in the export of salt, import of coal, whereas major shortfall was in fertilisers, timber logs and steel cargo.
