Adani Ports handled rail freight of over 120 million metric tonnes (MMT), the highest ever, in the financial year 2022-23 and generated a record revenue of Rs 14,000 crore for Railways, the company said in a statement.
The cargo volume handled by Adani Ports surpassed its previous record of 98.61 MMT in 2021-22, with a year-over-year growth of 22 percent.
Gujarat’s Mundra Port, operated by Adani Ports & Special Economic Zone Limited (APSEZ), handled 15,000 container trains, cementing its position as India’s EXIM gateway.
In 2022-2023, the number of double-stack container trains handled by Mundra Port grew by 4.3 percent on an annual basis.
“Double-stack loading of containers on trains ensures transport in an energy-efficient and reliable manner, reducing overall unit costs and improving customer satisfaction. This demonstrates Mundra Port’s commitment to environmentally friendly operations,” said the company.
“The use of rail transport reduces the carbon footprint of freight transport, and the efficient handling of container trains reduces the need for additional trucking, further reducing carbon emissions,” it added.
Adani Ports, the country’s largest commercial port operator, has been a leader in developing India’s port and logistics infrastructure. This achievement, the company says, is an example of responsible business practices and sustainable development.
(APSEZ) has evolved from a port operator to an integrated transportation facility offering an end-to-end solution, from port to customer’s port. It is the largest port developer and operator in India with six strategically located ports and terminals on the west coast and five on the east coast of the country.
