NMPT introduces priority berthing facility

December 2015
New Mangalore Port Trust has allowed priority berthing facility for coastal cargo ships (ships which sail from one port to another port within the country). A berth has been earmarked for the purpose. With this, the ships carrying coastal cargo need not wait at the port for the berth. The port has introduced Ro-Ro (roll-on roll-off) service between Mangaluru and Hazira port. In Ro-Ro, the loaded trucks are driven into the vessel, and are driven out from the vessel once they reach the destination.
