Paradip Port is the second largest cargo handling port in India and amongst 13 major ports. It is located in Odisha at a latitude of 200 15’ 55.44” N and longitude of 860 40’ 34.62” E. The port is situated at a distance of 210 nautical miles from Kolkata and 260 nautical miles from Visakhapatnam, the other two major ports in the eastern region of the country.
Paradip Port is strategically located in the Bay of Bengal in close proximity with China, Japan, Myanmar and the rest of the South East Asian region. It is also the nearest deep water port for the entire east and north-east part of the country.
Our Paradip terminal is an all-weather mechanised terminal which has state-of-the-art infrastructure with the highest loading rate among the iron ore handling terminals at the Paradip Port Trust. The Paradip mechanised facility handles dry bulk cargo by way of export and is the primary export channel for AM/NS India, Paradip pellet plant, via a fully mechanised conveyor system from the plant.
The 16 MMTPA all-weather deep-draft terminal in Paradip Port, Odisha, is strategically located in the Bay of Bengal in close proximity to China, Japan, Myanmar and the rest of the southeast-Asian region. With a 9.2km conveyor, the facility connects the pellet plant to the berthing facility catering to pellet plant exports.
The terminal can handle vessels up to 105,000 DWT and can export dry bulk cargo through a mechanized handling system. The terminal has the highest loading rate among iron ore handling terminals of Paradip Port Trust (~100,000 Tonnes per day) for which it has received appreciation. The project won the prestigious Project Management Institute (PMI) India award in 2013 for project excellence.

Cargo is loaded through a mechanised ship loading system. It is reclaimed from the stockyard through reclaimers and conveyed to the ships via high-speed conveyors.
Dust suppression systems are installed at various locations in the stockyard and the conveyor system to moisten cargo, and reduce any fugitive dust emissions.
The Paradip Port offers various services such as pilotage, tugging, mooring, etc.
Paradip Port is connected via road to all major industrial centres through Cuttack. Cuttack is around 90 km from Paradip Port and is connected to it via NH 5A. The port is also connected to Bhubaneswar via Cuttack by the state highway SH 12.
Paradip Port rail network is a part of the East Coast railway system and is connected to the hinterland via Cuttack by a double line with electrified rail link. A new 82 km line connecting Haridaspur and Paradip has also been commissioned for transporting iron ore.
