New volume milestone in fertilizer handling for APM Terminals Pipavav
APM Terminals Pipavav crossed an important milestone, handling more than 300,000 metric tonnes of fertilizer in September 2020.
This is the highest monthly fertilizer volume handled at Pipavav Port till date. The Port handled 328,219 MT of various fertilizers surpassing the previous milestone. It is important to note that the Port achieved this milestone during the challenging times of Covid19.
Non-availability of labour resources and other logistics constraints have severely impacted fertilizer handling & evacuation at all ports in the region. However, the port was able to mobilize labour, enhance evacuation and normalize operations quickly. As a result, APM Terminals Pipavav was able to efficiently handle shipments from all existing and new customers while surpassing its previous records.
We are grateful to our customers for their faith during such troubled times and to Indian Railways [Western Region] for their consistent support in evacuation.
