Container Corporation of India (Concor) has launched the coastal shipping facility from Kandla Port to VOC Port in Tuticorin, via New Mangalore Port.

YR Belagal, Traffic Manager of New Mangalore Port Trust (NMPT), said the service aims to provide better connectivity from southern India to western and northern India through the sea route.

Concor, which will carry domestic and exim container cargo in coastal shipping, has made arrangements for last-mile connectivity through rail from New Mangalore Port to Bengaluru to cater to the trade fraternity in and around Bengaluru, apart from meeting the requirements in Mangaluru.

On its maiden voyage recently, Concor’s vessel unloaded 37 import containers and loaded 80 export containers at New Mangalore Port. The coastal route will have weekly service. Belagal said the coastal movement of cargo through waterways is seamless.
