Vizag Terminal achieves a record 72% increase in cargo handling in August 2020 over April-20. One more achievement as the team continues to work very hard to service the key economic sectors. Between April-August 2020, the terminal clocked a 10% rise in cargo handling at 5.55 million tonnes, up from 5.06 million tonnes in same period last year.
“These green shoots in pickup of economic activity are signaling towards our return to a robust and thriving economy, albeit in phased manner. The beginning of resumption in global demand, especially in the steel sector has helped our Vizag terminal to score a higher cargo handling turnaround in these challenging times. This is testament of our commitment towards nation building by providing uninterrupted service that benefits the common man,” said Rajiv Agarwal, CEO & MD, Essar Ports Ltd.
