People resort to sea-worship to protect themselves from sea-erosion

Jawaharlal Nehru Port Container Terminal(JNPCT), one of the four terminals at JNPort which is directly managed by Port authority, handled 14,29,936 TEUS till 7th March, surpassing last year record of 14,29,277 TEUs and registering 7.6 per cent year on year 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.


During Last month( Feb’17), the berth productivity was 73.37 moves per hour recording 13 per cent growth over Last Year’s average of 64.98 moves per 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.   

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


JNPT management congratulated the entire team of JNPCT for this record performance and thanked all the stakeholders for their continued support in achieving this feat.
