The Jawaharlal Nehru Port Authority (JNPA) at Navi Mumbai is a premier container handling Port in India accounting for around 50% of the total containerised cargo volume, across the major ports of India. Commissioned on 26th May 1989, in less than three decades of its operations, JNPA has transformed from a bulk cargo terminal to the premier container port in the country. Ranked 26th among the top 100 Container Ports in the world, JNPA is connected to over 200 ports in the world.
Currently JNPA operates five container terminals: The NhavaSheva Free Port Terminals (NSFT), the NhavaSheva International Container Terminal (NSICT), the Gateway Terminals India Pvt. Ltd. (GTIPL), NhavaSheva International Gateway Terminal(NSIGT) and the newly commissioned Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals Private Limited (BMCT). The Port also has a Coastal Berth to facilitate coastal cargo, a Shallow Water Berth for general cargo and another Liquid Cargo Terminal which is managed by the BPCL-IOCL consortium. The Fourth Container Terminal is being developed in two phases and is expected to be fully operational by April 2025 with quay length of 2,000 metres adding an annual capacity of 4.8 million TEUs
To meet the increasing demand from EXIM trade, JNPA is constantly upgrading its capabilities to offer cost-effective integrated logistics solutions, throughinfrastructure expansion plans and implementation of several ‘Ease of Doing Business’ initiatives. These steps include gate automation, an inter-terminal transfer system linking all terminals, Direct Port Delivery (DPD) services helping faster delivery of import consignments at reduced costs, the creation of a logistics data bank to track the movement of containers and the introduction of new tariff incentives for rail cargo to promote modal-shift.
In addition, JNPA has also developed a multi-product SEZ in its owned freehold land of 277 hectares to attract international capital and global giants in manufacturing. In addition, the JNPA is also developing a satellite port at Vadhvan and Dry Ports at Jalna and Wardha, to promote the industrialization of the hinterland.
These expansion plans are being developed in an eco-friendly manner and adequate measures are being taken to maintain ecological balance. Today nearly 34% of the port area is under green cover including mangroves and the Port has taken up various other initiatives as a Green Port. JNPA has also undertaken various social initiatives to develop a healthy relationship with the port and the local population. With a view to improving the employable abilities of the local PAPs and other local population, JNPA is in the process of developing – JNPA CIDCO Multi-Skill Development Center to provide and impart proper technical training in different disciplines to PAPs and local persons in order to create suitable skilled labour force by improving/imparting necessary skill to cater to diverse requirements of labour for maritime logistics in Port terminals, requirements of Maritime and other industries, Port Users, Airports and Service Sector.

The shades of blue in the JNPA logo are inspired by the Water Bodies that is our source of livelihood. The flexible strokes and lines help distinguish JNPA as the port that offers flexibility and ease in operations.
