NMPT’s cargo handling beyond target

The New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT) expressed in a statement that it has surpassed the cargo handling target set by the Shipping Ministry for the first 10 months of 2012-13.

According to the statement, the port handled 30.08 million tonnes of cargo till January 29 during 2012-13 as against 26.6 million tonnes handled during the corresponding period of the previous year, registering a growth of 13.08%.

M.S. Balani, Traffic Manager of NMPT, said that the port has achieved the target of 30 million tonnes fixed by the Union Shipping Ministry for the first 10 months of the current fiscal.

P. Tamilvanan, Chairman of NMPT attributed the growth in cargo to the increased growth in the handling of coal, maize, container cargoes, crude oil and products by Mangalore Refinery and Petrochemicals Ltd during the period.  According to him, the port could reach this stage in spite of the sudden shortfall of 8 million tonnes of iron ore traffic due to mining ban. The container traffic registered a growth of 3.75% during the period.

Marketing efforts of the port, infrastructure addition at the port and cooperation by officers, employees, cargo handling workers, trade unions and the port users have also contributed for this growth, he added.
