Paradip Port looking at 110 mt throughput this fiscal: Chairman

The efforts of port users and the entire ecosystem put in place at Paradip Port have delivered more than 100 million tonnes (mt) of cargo handling in the last two years and it is on track to cross the 110-mt mark this fiscal, said Mr Rinkesh Roy, Chairman of Paradip Port Trust (PPT), at the Port Users’ Meet 2019 held earlier this week.

The port has also been focusing on safety, efficiency and the environment, which will definitely make it the leading port in the country in the coming year, he said, adding that a motivated team of employees and energised port users will rewrite its success saga in the years to come.  Like in the previous years, Mr Roy presented awards to the best performing exporters, importers, stevedores and shipping/steamer agents on the occasion, said a release.
