One of the key advantages JNPT offers as a Port is a close proximity to Mumbai, the economic
capital of India, and also a strongly connected network of rail and roadways network from other major
cities across the country. The accessibility to the Port is very critical for key stakeholders as it makes
Trade convenient and provides ease of doing business. We are looking to strengthen this network
and have planned many projects in and around the Port area to enhance our connectivity and make
it beneficial for trade and commuter traffic.
Port Location :
Jawaharlal Nehru Port is located at 18 degrees 56' 43" N (latitude) and 72 degrees 56' 24'' E
(longitude) along the eastern shore of the Mumbai harbor of Elephanta Island. The Port was
commissioned for commercial operations in the year 1989 and over the next three decades it
evolved into the number one container Port in India and amongst the top 30 container Port globally.
Today JNPT accounts for more than half of total container volumes handled in the domestic
maritime sector and around 40% of the nation's overall containerized ocean trade.
