 Kattupalli offers its customers best-in-class infrastructure designed to adequately handle the fast-growing volumes.  Free from the congestion-related issues that typically afflict city-based ports, Kattupalli has efficaciously ensured supply chain reliability for its customers.

In view of the rapid economic and volume growth expected in the southern region, Kattupalli stands well poised to better serve the needs of the import and export community in the future, offering customized transportation solutions and reducing supply chain costs and complexity.

 With an annual handling capacity of 1.2 million TEUs, a draught of 14 metres and two berths of 710 metres length each, Kattupalli can handle the largest vessels calling the southern coast of India. The quay side infrastructure constitutes 6 QCs and 15 RTGs. With 360 reefer plug points, the port can accept and handle reefer cargo as well, the release added.
