For the first time in the history of Mumbai Port Trust two full rakes received from Baramati and Rahuri were handled simultaneously in the Docks to meet the schedule of export of raw sugar. The rakes were unloaded and released in the free period. This was made possible with the coordinated efforts of Exporters, Custom House Brokers, RITES, Indian Railways and Mumbai Port Trust. The sugar consignment is being exported to Bangladesh and Somalia.
Mumbai Port has extended pre-shipment storage facilities of 30 free days for the agri-products. Further, concessional demurrage charges have been approved for attracting sugar consignments.
Mumbai Port Trust is geared up to support all infrastructural requirements for handling additional quantity of raw sugar for export on behalf of all sugar exporters.
