Jawahar Lal Nehru Port

Jawaharlal Nehru Port, the most high-tech and modern major seaport of India, is located in the southern end of Navi Mumbai, Maharashtra. India's first fully computerized and automated port, Jawaharlal Nehru Port can handle third generation container vessels. The port is equipped with facilities of container terminal with three berths, shallow draught berth, container freight stations and private container terminal. It offers marine services such as pilotage, night navigation and vessel traffic management system.

Jawahar

Jawaharlal Nehru Port (also known as Nhava Sheva) is a port in Maharashtra, India that borders the Arabian Sea. The sea port is named after the first Prime Minister of India, Jawaharlal Nehru. The port is run by the Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust, an organisation entrusted with the operations of the large shipping port in Navi Mumbai, India and controlled by the Central Government of India. The port lies on the mainland, opposite the city of Mumbai across the Thane Creek. The port was created to augment the shipping capacity in Mumbai and provide an alternative to merchants wanting to save octroi charges imposed by the Brihanmumbai Municipal Corporation. JNPT also has daily ferry service to Gateway of India. The Central Industrial Security Force is the designated security agency for the port.

It is well connected to major highways and rail networks in India. The closest suburban railhead is CBD Belapur. The port handles 65% of India's container traffic has a berthing period of 37 hours which is considered to be very long. Jawaharlal Nehru Port encompasses an area of 10 kmē but access roads are poor with only a two lane road servicing it which is often in a bad shape miring many trucks in the slush. New terminals are to be set up to alleviate the current problems, but it would only be ready by 2008.
