Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT), the premiere container Port in India, continues to scale up its growth trajectory with new business initiatives between friendly neighbouring countries. There is a new direct service, Sharjah Container Terminal (SCT) – JNPT – Kandla –SCT, for cargo shipment, added to the existing shipping service operating between UAE and India. Speaking on this new service, Sanjay Sethi, Chairman, JNPT said, “As India’s leading container Port, JNPT is constantly innovating and improving its operational efficiency and scaling up its business capacity. We are committed to provide seamless customer service and ease of doing business for the EXIM community and this allows us to be the preferred choice as a business partner in the maritime sector. UAE is developing its Ports and is becoming a key destination for global trade due to its strategic access to Asia, Africa and Europe. Thus strengthening the maritime ties between both countries will be helpful for developing the maritime sector in the Asian region and open new avenues for growth in the global market as well.” The Vessel M.V.
