Cargo ship­ment through Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port seeks to usher in the de­sired ef­fi­ciency in lo­gis­tics and sup­ply chain man­age­ment by of­fer­ing the ideal route for the traders. The port is also staged to of­fer ef­fi­ciency in tran­sit time for all the cargo hail­ing from China and other South Asian coun­tries into Nag­pur and the sur­round­ing re­gions. As a part of is multi-modal con­nec­tiv­ity model the port is cur­rently build­ing its as­so­ci­a­tion with CON­COR to launch its reg­u­lar train ser­vice con­nect­ing Nag­pur with the Port.

Anil Yend­luri, CEO, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port, said, “Apart from en­hanc­ing route op­ti­mi­sa­tion and of­fer­ing re­duced trans­ac­tional costs and over­all lead time, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port is built to of­fer a multi-modal con­nec­tiv­ity model which boosts the uni­ver­sal in­ter­ests of the traders and con­signees util­is­ing our port ser­vices. Our world-class and tech­nol­ogy driven in­fra­struc­ture fur­ther re­it­er­ates our claim to of­fer the most con­ve­nient and trade ef­fi­cient gate­way on the east­ern pe­riph­ery of the coun­try.”

The port’s strate­gic lo­ca­tion clubbed with its vast hin­ter­land makes it a pre­ferred choice for in­ter and in­tra cargo move­ments orig­i­nat­ing from the cen­tral and south­ern parts of In­dia. Im­port and ex­port cargo ship­ments from Nag­pur have been tak­ing far­fetched routes re­sult­ing in es­ca­lated trans­port costs while kill los­ing out on time.

Vinita Venkatesh, Director, Kr­ish­na­p­at­nam Port Con­tainer Ter­mi­nal, said, “Ship­ping over KPCT can shave off at least one week’s tran­sit time for Nag­pur im­ports and ex­ports when com­pared to ship­ping over west coast ports, es­pe­cially for east­bound cargo.” “Traders, CHAs and for­warders in Nag­pur are en­cour­aged to ex­tend their li­censes and op­er­a­tions to KPCT and ben­e­fit from a surge in their busi­ness.” she fur­ther added.

The cur­rent tran­sit time from China to Nag­pur via JNPT on the older routes which ranges be­tween 22 to 25 days can be dras­ti­cally trimmed down to 15 to 18 days via KPCT. Sim­i­larly, from Yangon to Nag­pur via JNPT tran­sit time is 12 to 15 days whereas via KPCT tran­sit time is seven to 10 days thereby pro­vid­ing huge eco­nom­i­cal and trans­ac­tional ben­e­fits.

The port’s strong con­nec­tiv­ity with rails and roads and its ser­vice on smooth cargo move­ment is rapidly build­ing on its pref­er­ence as an ex­cel­lent trade route.
