• Mundra Port won “Best Port of the Year for Containerized Cargo” at the Gujarat Star Awards 2019.

Mr. Karan Adani, Chief Executive Officer and Whole Time Director of APSEZ said “KPCL is a crown jewel to join APSEZ's string of 10 networked ports. This acquisition would accelerate our stride towards FY25 vision of handling 400 MMT of cargo. Given the best-in-class infrastructure and the distinct hinterland catered by KPCL, this acquisition will add remarkable value to our pan-India footprint.

APSEZ with its pan India presence has been continuously outperforming Indian cargo volume growth. Our focus on diversifying cargo mix continues. Gas (LNG, LPG) being the newest commodity added this quarter to the cargo basket. In FY20, we expect to achieve cargo volume of 224-226 MMT, Revenue growth of around 13% and EBIDTA growth of around 14%.

We continue to focus on Environment Social and Governance. Efficient use of water and energy from cleaner sources, reduction of emission levels and zero tolerance for fatalities at our ports continue to be our top priorities.”
