Mundra Terminal in Gujarat

December 21st, 2021 – DP World, a leading provider of smart supply chain solutions, invests in its Mundra terminal in Gujarat to enhance infrastructure, improve efficiency and reliability, reiterating its commitment to modernize the port and logistics sector in the country.

DP World has added two new state-of-the-art Super-Post Panamax Quay Cranes to its existing fleet, highlighting the Mundra Terminal’s ability to handle increasingly large container ships with rapid turnaround.

Equipped with the latest technology, these Super-Post-Panamax cranes have 22 container and twin lifts, making it easier to handle ultra-large vessels, creating greater capacity, and thus meeting more sophisticated customer requirements.

The cranes have a built-in Remote Crane Management System (RCMS) that enables advanced planning for maintenance and enhances the availability and reliability of equipment, thereby reducing downtime and increasing overall terminal efficiency.

Edendru Jain, CEO, DP World Ports & Terminals Mundra, said, “The new Super-Post Panamax cranes will ensure operational efficiencies at Mundra Port, enable faster turnaround times, and save costs for our customers.

This is another step towards modernization to ensure that our end customer experience is truly industry leading.

Our investment in port infrastructure ensures best in class berth productivity, safe and crowd-free handling of properties at our terminals to support local businesses and international business alike.

DP World’s endeavour to continuously enhance infrastructure reinforces our commitment to India’s growing maritime trade and logistics development.

Recently, DP World has become the first container terminal operator in Gujarat to handle over 13 million TEUs and 10 million containers.

DP World has built a strong network of logistics assets in Gujarat including a container freight station, inland rail terminal and cold chain facility.
