Container volume via India’s Port of Jawaharlal Nehru at Nhava Sheva fell 1.4 percent year-over-year in 2012, as the slump in trade hurt traffic growth at the country’s largest box gateway. The number of containers handled by the west coast port’s three terminals totaled 4.25 million 20-foot-equivalent units, down from 4.31 million TEUs in 2011. According to the report, APM Terminals Mumbai handled 1.96 million TEUs, up 3.6 percent from 1.9 million TEUs a year earlier. Traffic via DP World’s Container Terminal fell about 25 percent to 1.09 million TEUs from 1.45 million TEUs. State-owned Jawaharlal Nehru Container Terminal contributed 1.2 million TEUs, a gain of 23.5 percent over 2011.
