PSA Mumbai, one of the five container terminals operating at Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNP), has set a record by handling 1,94,708 TEUs in August 2023. This is the highest monthly container throughput ever handled by a single terminal in the entire JNP, surpassing the previous record of 1,90,709 TEUs set in January 2018.
PSA Mumbai has achieved a cumulative handling of 6 million TEUs within a short span of 5 years and 6 months, since its inception in 2018. This exceptional performance has continued with a 37 per cent year-on-year growth to date in 2023. Currently, PSA Mumbai accounts for 35 percent of the entire container traffic flowing through JNP and approximately 10 per cent of India’s total container traffic, it highlighted in a release.
PSA Mumbai has consistently invested in state-of-the-art infrastructure and advanced technologies to continually enhance its operational efficiency and productivity.
To ensure that PSA Mumbai continues to be the terminal of choice in JNP, the terminal began its Phase 2 capacity expansion in April 2022, which involves the construction of an additional 1 km of quay (berth) and 44 hectares of stacking yard. This expansion will effectively double the terminal’s existing current capacity, enabling it to handle 4.8 million TEUs by the first quarter of 2025 and
enable PSA Mumbai to play its part in supporting the growth of the Indian economy.
