JN Port turns over crate ships in 22 hours: World Bank LPI report

Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA), India’s largest state-owned container port by volume handled and the country’s second largest overall, turns over container ships in 22 hours, or 0.9 days, the World Bank wrote in its Logistics Performance Index (LPI) Report, 2023.

A ship’s turnaround time (TAT) refers to the time it takes for the ship to report at a port’s anchorage until it leaves the berth. It broadly reflects the efficiency of a port.

Jawaharlal Nehru Port’s container ship turnaround time is among the best ranked by the World Bank for container ports worldwide in the Logistics Performance Index, putting India on the list of top performers.

“The World Bank data reinforces that our efficiency parameters are better than many countries according to the 2023 LPI report, and we as a team are committed to further reducing logistic costs and times for export-import trade (EXIM),” said Sanjay Sethi, Chairman, JNPA.

JNPA was able to accomplish this feat due to various measures taken to reduce dwell time. Most importantly, Sethi said, the operational efficiency of terminal operators is the greatest, along with better landside rail and road connectivity, the introduction of Centralized Parking Plaza (CPP), the digitization of processes, the streamlining of ship docking and undocking and deployment Contribution has been more tugs for smooth ship movements.

The port near Mumbai handled a record 6.05 million TEUs (twenty-foot equivalent units) in fiscal 2023, the most since the port began operating more than three decades ago.

Container volume handled at JNPA increased by 6.45 percent in FY23 from 5.68 million TEUs a year earlier.
