Dear Customers and Business partners,
Paradip Port is one of the premier maritime gateways on the East Coast of India. Based on its core strengths of deep draft, proximity to rich mineral reserves and a large hinterland, the Port is all set to become the hub port of the East Coast. It will also act as an economic thrust engine by offering world class marine and operational services. By leveraging on highly mechanized and dedicated handling facilities, superior supply chain connectivity and strategic partnerships, the Port is able to offer cost effective logistics solutions to customers.
Paradip commenced as a mono-commodity port on 18th April, 1966 having only one berth to handle Iron Ore vessels. Over the years, the Port has grown into a multi-commodity port and presently has fifteen berths, three Single point Moorings and one Ro Ro Jetty having state of art cargo handling equipment. The Port traffic has grown from 0.067 MMT in the year 1966-67 to 76.39 MMT in 2015-16. The Port’s traffic over the years has diversified and with the addition of the clean cargo berth, containers will be also dealt in large volumes. The performance parameters of Port have improved significantly and are at par with world class bench marks. This was possible due to the hard work and untiring efforts put in by the Port employees, users and other stakeholders. The Trade Unions have played a very responsible and mature role in the growth of the Port.
The Port Management has undertaken various projects to augment capacity and diversify operations further. The Port capacity is slated to increase from 126.94MMT at present to 325MMT by the year 2025 for which capacity expansion projects along with mechanization and modernization of the existing berths are in various stages of progress.
