JSW Jaigarh Port Successfully Handles Maiden Urea & largest sugar shipments

JSW Infrastructure, India’s leading private port operator, successfully handled its maiden urea import and largest sugar export shipments at its Jaigarh Port in Maharashtra. The sugar shipment was the highest among non-major ports in India. The cumulative cargo of these two commodities was over 500,000 metric tonnes. Going forward, JSW Jaigarh Port is expected to receive more urea shipments over the coming months.

Commenting on the cargo milestone, Arun Maheshwari, Joint Managing Director & CEO of JSW Infrastructure said, “The successful handling of largest sugar cargo of the season and maiden urea shipment is a testament of Jaigarh Port’s capability to cater to the growing and diverse demand of Indian regions. At Jaigarh, we not only offer our customers a multi-commodity port with the ability to handle various types of cargo but also the geographical advantage to service major market.”

JSW Infrastructure plans to focus on expanding its third-party cargo business at Jaigarh Port. The successful handling urea shipment vessel MV ER Nazire also opens a new route for India’s Ministry of Chemicals & Fertilisers to import and distribute fertilisers through Jaigarh Port, enabling a substantial savings in terms of time, logistics and efficiency.

The sugar shipment handled by the port was the largest sugar cargo of this season. JSW’s Jaigarh Port is well-connected to key regions of Maharashtra, Telangana, Goa, Karnataka and other nearby states
