India’s largest container port Nhava Sheva congested

After the monsoon hit the Indian state of Gujarat severely last week, the rain now also impacts Mumbai’s port Nhava Sheva. Serious traffic congestion has been reported and is supposed to last for approximately one week.
India’s largest container port Nhava Sheva congested

Ongoing rain drives vessel berthing delays and leads to congestions. Traffic jams have stretched to about 25 kilometers from the port gates. Trucks are stranded for an unpredictable period of time. Small vehicles are obliged to enter the port, customs and Port User Building (PUB) from another side which leads to further delays.

The monsoon has a big impact on India’s largest container port Jawaharlal Nehru Port (JNP), also known as Nhava Sheva, which is located in the east of Mumbai. JNP accounts for more than half of the total container volumes handled at India's 12 public ports and around 40 percent of the nation's overall containerized ocean trade.

The monsoon season in India is expected to last minimum until the end of September. Heavy to very heavy rain is predicted among others in the states of Telangana, Maharashtra and Karnataka. This might affect logistics facilities along coastal areas.
