This comes as APSEZ handled roughly 27% of India’s total cargo and 44% of container cargo in FY24.

“APSEZ is well poised to achieve 500 MMT of cargo volumes in 2025, aided by recently acquired Gopalpur Port, and the scheduled commissioning of Vizhinjam Port in the current year and WCT next year,” Ashwani Gupta, the whole-time Director & CEO of APSEZ said earlier.
