JNPA Ranked Among Top Global Performers with Impressive 22-Hour Turnaround Time

Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA), India’s leading container port, has accomplished an outstanding turnaround time (TAT) of just 22 hours, equivalent to 0.9 days, according to the Logistics Performance Index (LPI) Report 2023 published by the World Bank. JNPA’s TAT places India among the top performers globally, following its record-breaking handling performance in the previous fiscal year.

JNPA has implemented various measures to decrease dwell time, such as enhancing operational efficiency of terminal operators, improving landside-rail and road connectivity, introducing a Centralised Parking Plaza (CPP), digitizing processes, streamlining vessel berthing and unberthing, and deploying more tugs for smoother vessel transition.

Sanjay Sethi, JNPA’s Chairman, expressed his excitement about this accomplishment, stating that JNPA’s efficiency parameters are superior to those of many countries, as confirmed by the LPI 2023 report. He also emphasized the team’s commitment to further reducing logistics costs and time for the EXIM trade. The Chairman and Deputy Chairman of JNPA congratulated the team on their exceptional achievement.
