Dockworker unions at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust recently returned to work, ending a month-long strike over demands tied to medical benefits, wage increases and better working conditions. Normal operations have resumed at India’s biggest container gateway.
Cargo operations have now been restored to near normal levels, according to the latest update from DP World Nhava Sheva.
JNPT handles roughly 60 percent of the containers passing through India’s 12 major state-owned ports. The port complex includes APM Terminals-operated Gateway Terminals India and state-owned Jawaharlal Nehru Container Terminal.
The newest port statistics obtained by JOC.com show the disruption has taken a toll on the largest, public port, as its throughput during the month until Jan. 20 was down 2.3 percent year-over-year to 218,343 TEUs.
