JNPT and Peel Ports Form Strategic Partnership

JNPT and Peel Ports Form Strategic Partnership

Mumbai-based Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), the operator of India’s largest container terminal, has signed a Letter of Intent with the UK port operator Peel Ports, the owner of the Port of Liverpool, to exchange information and expertise on port operations, port management and hinterland connections.

JNPT and Peel Ports have also agreed to develop a series of modules in education and training of port operators, IT systems, traffic and trade between Liverpool and Mumbai.

”This strategic alliance between these two major ports will drive more efficient movement of goods and will build on our common objective of establishing optimal port performance,” India’s Minister for Shipping Shri Nitin Gadkari said.

In 2014, 1.8 million tonnes of goods worth GBP 3.9 billion were exported from the UK to India, with imports of 6.5 million tonnes to a value of GBP 3.3 billion.

JNPT currently operates three container terminals, two of which are operated by private companies and a fourth is under construction.

The quay wall has already been extended and planning is underway on a major new logistics facility to complement the existing supply chain support available close to the port.
