Andhra’s Gangavaram Port to develop 1st container terminal by 2023

The Port of Gangavaram is planning to set up its first container terminal to accelerate the growth of cargo business in Andhra Pradesh and surrounding industrial hubs. The terminal is expected to be completed by 2023. According to an official statement, the new terminal aims to increase supply chain efficiency and resiliency, reduce logistics costs, and turnaround time. The port also aims to offer substantial advantages to the industries in the hinterland – which include seafood, metal and minerals, agriculture, pharma, chemical, and refractory amongst others. “As part of the project, the port has already received three Ship to Shore (STS) container cranes and nine e-Rubber-Tyred Gantries (RTGs). Our new container terminal at Gangavaram Port will help us diversify into container cargo business as part of our strategic roadmap to achieve better cargo handling capacities in India. The upcoming terminal at Gangavaram Port shall also offer integrated logistics solutions to trade and industries far across the country,” the statement added.
