– Handled 500,000 tonnes of cargo during the year
– One of the few ports on the west coast to function fully during the pandemic
MUMBAI, June 24, 2020: Angre Port Private Limited, the most sheltered all-weather port in the Konkan region, has completed its first and highly successful year of operations, during which it handled more than 500,000 tonnes of cargo. The port, with its end-to-end logistics services, currently supports over 22 large and small local businesses across the state of Maharashtra, ranging from sugar, cement, manufacturing and industry raw materials. Angre Port is also offering its 300 acres of industrial backup land on competitive lease models to strategic businesses such as mega warehouses, port-based industries, logistics, tank terminals, and business parks.
Since its commencement in 2019, Angre Port has built several capabilities that enable hassle-free movement and storage for all types of cargo. These include 500,000 square feet of open storage yards for receiving cargo; 200,000 square feet of covered warehousing space; and 100,000 square feet of paved open storage yards for handling sensitive cargo over extended periods of time. It also has over 32,000 Kilo Litre of liquid storage capacity. In its novel model under integrated logistics, the port has moved 80,000 tonnes of cargo during the past year, with the port taking end-to-end responsibility for movement of the cargo from origin to destination. The recent strategic tie-up with Arjun Refineries at Angre, which is Konkan coast’s only port-based refinery, will add sustained liquid cargo volumes to the port’s output.
Commenting on the milestone, Mr. Eshaan Lazarus, Executive Director, Angre Port Private Limited, said, “It is a proud moment for the team at Angre Port, who have worked hard to develop a world-class facility within one, short year. We had set out with the objective of being an end-to-end port operator for our clients, ensuring timely and safe movement of their cargo, and helping them optimize their material handling cost. What makes this one-year milestone even more special is that we are one of the few ports along the west coast that have enabled continuity of the global supply chain even during the pandemic. It is a testament to our commitment to fostering economic growth in the Konkan region.”
Angre Port is well-equipped to provide top-notch marine, cargo and storage facilities, and in-house services that enable clients to enjoy a single-window, end-to-end service from the port right up to their factories or markets.
Angre Port’s unique location offers natural breakwaters in the form of hills on three sides, resulting in tranquil waters even at the peak of the southwest monsoons. This distinction has helped it become the first private cruise port in India, hosting India’s largest cruise vessel operated by Jalesh Cruises. Prior to the Covid-19 pandemic, the 2,000-passenger cruise made monthly trips from Mumbai to Angre, boosting the local tourism business in Konkan.
