Weather, crane breakdowns plague Nhava Sheva
Weather and cargo handling problems are hampering operations at India's biggest container terminal, according to an item in the Economic Times Monday.
A shipper wrote into the newspaper to complain that severe weather — it's the tail end of India's monsoon season — and crane breakdowns were upsetting shipping schedules and causing backlogs of containers at the Nhava Sheva International Container Terminal in Mumbai's Jawarhalal Nehru Port.
Meanwhile, all three container terminals at JNP handled more than 100,000 TEUs during July, with NSICT, managed by APM Terminals, handling the most at 119,000 TEUs. For the year through July, volume at the three terminals has totaled 1.3 million TEUs.
