Record volumes for Maersk in Mumbai terminal

APM Terminals reached record levels of handled cargo volumes in its terminal in Mumbai's Jawaharlal Nehru Port in the fiscal year 2014-2015.

In the displaced fiscal year from April 1st 2014 to March 31st 2015, APM Terminals' terminal in the Indian port Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNP) reached highest number of handled containers ever. A total of 2.01 million teu passed through the terminal in Mumbai, and this means that APM Terminals handles 45 percent of all volumes passing through the Mumbai port, says APM Terminals in a press release.

However, the record volumes also represent a problem, as the Indian port structure is unable to keep up with the increasingly bigger ships, at now upwards of 9,000 teu, that are calling in JNP, which has had its harbor channel deepened.
