Considering current situation due to spread of COVID-19, we are Implementing Govt. of India operating procedures at all our ports with safety of the workforce as a top priority.

Operational staff is quarantined at ports with necessary arrangements in place for safe work environment.Hygiene, sanitization of workplaces & sites are a top priority and has enabled 100% thermal scanning. Majority of our administrative staff are working from home.

Ports fall under essential services and as such all our ports are operating efficiently during this period of crises to ensure that supply chain of essential goods is not disrupted.”
