With a coastline of 5560 KMS and access to the sea on three sides with 11 major and 168 minor/intermediate ports in India, there remains a huge untapped potential for movement of cargo along the Indian coast without crossing an ocean. The primary advantages of coastal shipping are huge cost savings to the shipper and government, reduction of road traffic congestion and decrease in air pollution. Transportation of goods by coastal vessel is far more efficient and cost-effective than road transport and is much less prone to theft and damage.
Coastal shipping is ideal for transportation of Containers, Project Cargoes, Over Dimensional Cargoes, RORO cargoes such as cars, trucks, semi-trailer trucks, trailers, and railroad cars, Dry Bulk Cargoes like grain, fertilizers, steel, coal, salt, stone, scrap and minerals and Liquid Bulk Cargoes like oil products (such as petrol, diesel oil, kerosene, aviation spirit).
