Mundra Port, the flagship of Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd (APSEZ), created yet another record as it welcomed the largest container ship ever to call at an Indian port, the company announced.

The docked vessel, MSC Anna, has a length of 399.98 metres – roughly the length of four football fields – and is among the largest container ships, with a capacity to carry 19,200 TEUs (20-foot equivalent units).

“The arrival of MSC Anna at Mundra not only highlights the port’s capacity to handle mega ships but also reflects its pivotal role in enhancing India’s maritime trade capabilities,” the company said in a statement.

Its arrival draft is 16.3 metres, which can be accommodated only at Adani Ports, Mundra, as no other port in India is capable of berthing a deep-draft vessel.

During its stay, the expected exchange is 12,500 TEUs, underscoring Mundra Port’s capability to manage large-scale cargo efficiently, the company said.

In July 2023, Adani Ports, Mundra created a record by berthing MV MSC Hamburg, one of the longest container ships in the world, with an overall length of 399 metres and a capacity of 16,652TEUs.

Significantly, Mundra’s record-breaking feats continued into the latter half of 2023. Following the July feat, in October, Mundra Port became the first port in India to handle 16 million metric tons (MMT) of cargo in a single month. Its container terminal, CT-3, also reached a milestone by managing 3 million TEUs in a year, a first for any Indian terminal.

Additionally, in November, CT-3 set a monthly handling record of over 300,000 TEUs, the highest ever by any terminal in the country.

“As APSEZ continues to expand and upgrade its facilities, the port is set to play an increasingly significant role in the global shipping and logistics landscape,” the company said.

Spanning over 35,000 acres, Mundra Port is India’s largest commercial port. Its deep draft and all-weather capabilities facilitate the efficient evacuation of cargo, significantly reducing turnaround times for vessels. These attributes make it an attractive destination for major global shipping lines and a vital hub for both domestic and international trade.
