For the previous calendar year, Gateway Terminal operated by DP World at Vallarpadam, has reported 11 per cent growth in container traffic, according to a recent national daily report. The company has reported an annual throughput of 532,000 TEU in 2017. October turned out to be the best month for the terminal when it recorded a throughput of 51,000 TEU.
The company is attributing this modest growth to a host of factors including providing smart trade solutions for seamless operations. Its new digital portal Bharat Trade has also made processes easy for the customers with complete paperless transaction and real time exchange of data. The company is all set to introduce RFID based automated gate management system which will further add to the terminal’s efficiency.
