In April 2020, Angré Port, the all-weather port in the Konkan region, handled 22,000 MT of sugar exports, even as the reverse migration caused the industry to face labor crunch. The port handled a total of 1.50,000 MT of exports of sugar in FY20 and is lined up to manage 60,000 MT of exports of sugar in the immediate future.
Additionally, Angré Port loaded two separate mother vessels with sugar at the same time for the first time since its inception.
“Angré Port has been in close contact with local authorities, Customs, Maharashtra Maritime Board and others to align port operations with government directives and measures. This ensured timely movement of cargo from the port to different destinations all over the globe. Through robust port security measures, state-of-the-art cargo equipment and reliable warehousing facilities, Angré Port has been able to come to the aid of sugar consignments seeking a safe port for exports, helping them with a sense of urgency to achieve export volumes as the window is closing quickly due to approaching moonsoons, “the release states.
