Attendees were given a detailed presentation on the upcoming facility and were also taken on a guided tour of the terminal.

It gives me immense pleasure to announce that our dry bulk terminal at Tune Tekra will be commissioned by December 2014, as it will be a game-changer for EXIM trade of the Northwest hinterland, on account of its strategic location, infrastructural prowess and operational efficiency.

Adani Ports won the right to develop a dry bulk terminal with a cargo handling capacity of 14.112 MMTPA at Tuna Tekra, Kandla Port in February 2012 under a concession agreement with Kandla Port trust.
