Maritime Association of Nationwide Shipping Agencies – India (MANSA) has joined the maritime fraternity in congratulating PSA’s Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals (BMCT) at JNPT in handling its one millionth TEU.

“It goes to the credit of the BMCT to achieve this milestone in a span of just 20 months since it commenced operations in February last year. We wish that the next milestone will continue to come up much faster than expected and our ship-agent members will also play their small but significant role in taking the terminal to great heights,” said Captain Amit Wason, President, MANSA.

Rising trade and cargo movement augurs well for container terminals and our fellow intermediary ship-agents as also the Indian economy at large, he said.

Located at India’s largest and premier container gateway – BMCT is the fourth container terminal at the port with a quay length of 1000 meters in its phase-1 development and to be extended to 2000 meters berth length on completing expansion.

Established in 1977, Maritime Association of Nationwide Shipping Agencies – India which was till recently known as Mumbai and Nhava-Sheva Ship-Agents Association – (MANSA), underwent a name change to position the association’s nation-wide character given that its members account for 85% of the cargo handled at all ports across the country. The association gives a powerful voice to the grievance of ship agents and addresses their issues to enhance working and business environment besides good relationships with the port authorities and port administration.
