MUMBAI: Adani Hazira Port recently expanded its service locations by executing the first export container movement from Pithampur SEZ to Adani Hazira Container Terminal.
The shipper was SRF, stakeholder Allcargo Logistics arranged the logistics for the movement, and Maersk Line allotted space for the boxes on its service via Hazira.
Adani Hazira Port has thanked SRF for commencing exports through the terminal, as well as Allcargo and Maersk for their facilitation.
SRF, which moved its first 2x40 HC containers to Durban, expressed happiness at the opening of this new ex-im corridor for the company.
Mr Thapa, Chief Manager – Logistics said (India, Thailand and South Africa): “It has been a good experience working with the Adani team though it was our first shipment to Adani Hazira Port. There were certain doubts in my mind whether it will be worth diverting the shipment to Adani Hazira Port instead of Nhava Sheva. I would say that the Adani team and Allcargo jointly did a good job. We were updated by both the teams from time to time, right from when the movement began till vessel sailing. It was a smooth transaction i.e. timely placement, gate-in and sailing.” “Kudos to both the teams -- Adani and Allcargo.”
Mr Shahzad Athar, Associate General Manager, Container Marketing, stressed that Adani Hazira Port will provide a seamless gateway for industrial areas in Central India, who now have multiple evacuation points. Industrial locations like Pithampur, Dewas, Ratlam and Nagdha can surely benefit with reduced transit times and seamless movement for their export and import shipments, he added.
Hazira Port gives the following benefits to industrial areas in Central India:
• Seamless connectivity to port
• Distance advantage of 100 km as compared to Nhava Sheva
• Avoidance of bottlenecks
• Gates open all 7 days for dry and reefer cargo
• Healthy inventory of 20-ft/40-ft High Cubes and 40-ft reefers of Shipping Line.
• Faster turnaround of vehicles leading to reduced lead times for export and import
• Loading reliability
• Loading reliability
Allcargo Kheda has an open corridor for movement into Hazira and will have a dedicated fleet for the Pithampur, Dewas, Ratlam to Hazira route as it believes this will help the company provide seamless solutions to clients and ensure reliability in loading.
Mr Arun Sharma, Head of ICD-Kheda said “With ample empty inventory of Maersk and MSC in Hazira and gates open 7 days, exporter/ICD can look upon Hazira as an alternate gateway port to JNPT. Imports coming through Hazira will allow faster delivery to importers (reduced sea transit) vis a vis JNPT as vessel routing is Mundra-Hazira-JNPT. We carried out the first trial shipment and found services at Hazira to be world class; and the Road Route was indeed shorter than JNPT.”
