Containers-Pipavav2

Containers

APM Terminals Pipavav has a capacity to handle 1.35mil TEU. The port is well equipped with modern and efficient container handling equipment such as Post Panamx Quay Cranes, Rubber Tyre Gantry Cranes [RTGs], Rail Mounted Gantry Cranes [RMGCs] and associated support infrastructure. 

The port also operates using a technically advanced terminal operating system - Navis N4, e-Form 13, Vessel Traffic Management System (VTMS), EDI connectivity, customs clearance for Direct Port Delivery [DPD], reefer container inspection chamber and more.

Container Scanning

In December 2019, a drive-through X-Ray Based Container Scanner and a Radiation Portal Monitor became operational at APM Terminals Pipavav for the scanning of containers selected by the Customs Risk Management Centre. The EIR for containers selected for scanning are clearly marked 'Selected for Scanning' in red.The scanner, which has the capacity to scan around 100 containers per hour without the driver leaving the vehicle, reduces the time taken for the container scanning process. At the same time it helps prevent smuggling and detects wrongly declared goods.

Container freight stations 

There are three fully functional Container Freight Stations (CFS)  located between 2 and 8 kilometres from the container berths at the port - Logix Park, Contrans Logistics and CWC. As a result, containers can typically be moved from the CFS to the vessel in the shortest transit time; a clear time and cost savings advantage for both cargo owners and shipping lines.

The port has adequate storage facilities within the port boundaries and has sufficient land available outside the port for future development. Seamless multimodal connectivity to hinterland and Inland Container Depots (ICDs) ensures quick and smooth transfer of cargo. The port is located in close proximity to the proposed Dedicated Freight Corridor [DFC] and the Delhi – Mumbai Industrial Corridor.

The CFSs at Port Pipavav currently handle a wide range of cargo generated from Saurashtra central, northern Gujarat, Rajasthan and other parts of northwest India. These include cotton, wood pulp, sesame seeds, cattle feeds, agricultural products, ceramic tiles, soda ash, auto parts, spices, capital goods, scrap, water paper, and electronics.

Reefer Facilities

Port Pipavav is located right in the heart of the seafood belt in South Gujarat. Gujarat is the largest exporter of seafood in India. With increased demand from SE Asia, the state has rapidly improved its export facilities. Port Pipavav supports this growth with a dedicated reefer area and over 500 reefer plugs. The port has access to a rich reefer hinterland of approximately 40,000 TEUs annually and is the leader both in volume and value of seafood exports.
