Essar Ports posts record growth

(Posted on 21/06/19)

Essar’s Ports business, which operates four terminals on the east and west coasts of India, has registered a 28 percent growth in cargo volumes in the first two months of the current financial year (April-May 2019), with a throughput of 9.2 MT (million tonnes).

The growth has been driven by a 127 percent increase in third-party cargo when compared to the same period in the previous financial year. Cargo volumes from captive customers also grew by 11 percent.

In the month of May 2019 alone, the four terminals cumulatively handled about 4.8 MT of cargo, which is a growth of ~34% when compared to ~3.6 MT of cargo handled in May 2018.

Essar Ports is one of India’s largest private sector port operators in terms of capacity and throughput. It has four operational terminals in India—Hazira and Salaya (both in Gujarat) on the west coast, and in Visakhapatnam and Paradip on the east coast. The current operational capacity of the port terminals in India is 110 MTPA.

Essar Ports specializes in development and operations of Ports and Terminals for handling liquid, dry bulk, break bulk and general cargo. It is one of the largest private sector port operators in India by capacity and throughput.
