MoS formulates a new berthing policy for dry bulk cargo

Meanwhile, the MoS has formulated a new berthing policy for dry bulk cargo for major ports. The policy will be implemented by all major ports by August 20, 2016. The objective of the policy is to provide a standardised framework for the calculation of norms specific to the commodity handled, reduce berthing time and overall turnaround time of ships, drive higher cargo throughput using the available infrastructure, improve utilisation of port assets, create additional capacity without any significant capital investment and increase competitiveness of major ports.
