India’s longest container terminal ready, PM Modi to inaugurate it on February 18

As Prime Minister Narendra Modi is scheduled to inaugurate the longest container terminal in the country at Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNP) on February 18, India is all set to take a giant step forward in terms of enhancing its containers handling capacity.


The first phase of terminal four is complete and this will add a capacity of 24 lakh containers per year, the most for any government-run Indian port.


Modi's inauguration of the first phase of container terminal four comes almost two and half years after he laid its foundation stone in October 2015. The one km long terminal will be able to dock mother vessels and handle the biggest container ships. It can handle three container ships at one go.
