NMPT has geared up to handle the additional cargo by adding more infrastructure like Reach Stacker and paved stack area for stacking containers. 1 No. 104 T capacity high tech mobile crane is positioned and a well paved stackyard measuring 40,000 sq. ft. is getting ready. The second Reach Stacker will be provided shortly. Additional number of 86 Reefer plug points will be provided at the stack yard to meet the requirement of seasonal sea food to be exported from the west coast region. The Port has taken all measures to ensure zero waiting time at anchorage and quick turn round time. The Port is also giving concession of 25% on port related charges.
