We are continuously looking for ways to improve our service offering and increase the efficiency of the terminal to remain terminal of choice for our customers.”
Nhava Sheva, the busiest container port in northwest India, handled a record 4.8 million TEUS in 2017, with APM Terminals Mumbai accounting for 42% of the port’s total container volume.
