Maersk CFS has opened a bonded warehouse at the Nhava Sheva port complex in western India.
The port is India's busiest container gateway and near its biggest city, Mumbai. The facility, which is designed to handle import bonded cargo, is 1,560 square meters.
'Nhava Sheva is an important gateway for the entire western region and also an international hub, strategically located to manage cargo from this region,' said A.K. Das, commissioner of customs-imports, at a ceremony to open the warehouse. 'The facility will immensely benefit the trade community who can now use the facility to transport cargo in parts for distribution or consumption.”
Maersk CFS is a subsidiary of the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group, and manages container freight stations in India. Another Maersk subsidiary, APM Terminals, manages one of three container terminals in the Nhava Sheva port complex.
