A post-conference tour is being arranged to JNPT, Mumbai, following the INCHOE 2018 conference.

The port was established on 26 May 1989. JN Port is the biggest container handling port in India, handling around 44% of the country’s containerized cargo, crossing the historic landmark of 4 million TEUs in container throughput consecutively for the last five years. In its coveted role as the Hub Port on the West Coast of India, JNP is ranked 31st among the top 100 Container Ports in the world.
Having set for itself a long-term goal of achieving 10 million TEUs by the year 2020-21, through addition of two more Terminals, viz. the 330M Stand-alone Container Terminals (DP World) and the 4th Container Terminal (Port of Singapore Authority) and a Satellite Port at Vadhvan Point, JNP throws open an array of worthwhile opportunities for the maritime trade, including the shipping lines and shippers, to ferry their cargo to various sectors across the globe.
JNP consist of a full-fledged Custom House, 30 Container Freight Stations and connectivity to 52 Inland Container Depots across the country. The hinterland connectivity both by rail and road is being further strengthened by ongoing projects like the Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC), which will increase the existing train capacity of 27 to 100 trains per day; Multi-Modal Logistics Park (MMLP) and widening of the Port road connectivity. Its proximity to the Cities of Mumbai, Navi Mumbai and Pune; airports; hotels, exhibition centres, etc. gives the Port an extra edge to address the shippers’ needs, efficiently and promptly.
