Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ), the largest commercial ports operator in India accounting for nearly one-fourth of the cargo movement in the country, was honoured with the Port/Terminal of the Year- Indian Subcontinent 2022 award at the Global Ports Forum (GPF) Awards.
The award was announced in the presence of several international port operators and industry leaders at a grand ceremony held recently in Dubai, UAE. The honour recognized APSEZ’s valuable contribution to the Global Ports &Terminals Industry and acknowledged its roles and achievements.
“We would like to thank Shipping Lines and all stake holders for their support to APSEZ containers terminals. We look forward to building high class port infrastructure for the seamless handling of exim cargo,” a company spokesperson shared.
The company’s success story has been unmatchable- it is the biggest volume player in the country and has around 42% market share in India. APSEZ is also the biggest Port Operator in the Indian subcontinent.
The Ports’ infrastructure is contributing to the domestic economy in a big way. Currently, its presence is across 13 domestic ports in seven maritime states of Gujarat, Maharashtra, Goa, Kerala, Andhra Pradesh, Tamil Nadu and Odisha. It presents the most widespread national footprint with deepened hinterland connectivity. The port facilities are equipped with the latest cargo-handling infrastructure which is not only best-in-class, but also capable of handling the largest vessels calling at Indian shores. Our ports are equipped to handle diverse cargos, from dry cargo, liquid cargo, crude to containers.
The company’s integrated services across three verticals, i.e., Ports, Logistics and SEZ, has enabled it to forge alliances with leading Indian businesses making APSEZ an undisputed leader in the Indian port sector. Mundra Port has the export competitiveness for the north-west industrial cluster.
This prestigious award is also a big push to APSEZ as it aims to further create its global presence and is targeting expansion to become the global port group. It is already on its way to become a global terminal operator with infrastructure build up in Sri Lanka with construction of Colombo West International Terminal (CWIT) and with recent acquisition of Haifa Port in Israel.
