The period of agreement shall be for 2 years extendable by one more year on mutual agreement.
There are four window categories based on annual throughput.
|Category of Throughput
|No. of Cranes
|40,000 to 75,000 TEUs
|150 Mtrs to 200 Mtrs

|16 to 26
|75,000 to 1,50,000 TEUs
|200 Mtrs to 305 Mtrs
|3 to 4
|26 to 40
|1,50,000 to 2,00,000 TEUs
|225 Mtrs to 305 Mtrs
|4 to 5
|40 to 48
|2,00,000 TEUs & above
|Up to 305 Mtrs
|4 to 5
|48 & above
The category of consortia will be revised on the basis of its performance in the previous quarter. The window period shall be fixed based on crane intensity and moves.
a) The Port will ensure berth productivity of 36 moves / hour for the window having parcel size of less than 1200 moves / voyage subject to assuring of stowage to achieve crane density of more than 2.
b) The Port will ensure berth productivity of 50 moves / hour for the window having parcel size of more than 1200 moves and up to 200 moves / voyage subject to assuring of stowage to achieve crane density of more than 3.
c) The Port will ensure berth productivity of 60 moves / hour for the window having parcel size of more than 2000 moves / voyage subject to assuring of stowage to achieve crane density of more than 4.
The vessels calling under the window agreement must report to Pilot Station within +/- 2 hrs of the commencement of window timing.
All the vessels calling under the fixed berthing window agreement shall be allowed late reporting maximum 5 times a year by 4 hours. However, the late reporting must be communicated to the Port at least 48 hrs before the commencement of window timing. However, sailing shall be within window timings agreed.
Sailing time shall be maintained as per the window timings agreed.
The agreement shall be terminated by either party by giving one-month notice to other.
