Overview

Ports being harbingers of trade and commerce play an important role in the economics of the region. Further Ports are of remarkable service importance since they act as a place for interchange of two transport modes; maritime and land whether by rail or road. The essential aspects of the port lie in its inter-model nature.

Ports and related land based logistic chains face major challenges from growth in trade. Different ports face different challenges. Ensuring adequate capacity and reconciling various parties’ interests is important for all ports. Ports and related land-side logistics chains are critical to the competitiveness of regional/national businesses, which rely on them to deliver imports and to take exports to the global markets. Improvements to ports and related logistics sectors can remove barriers and transaction costs to trade, increase competition and provide vital linkages to domestic and global value chains.

As a result, the performance of ports and land-side logistics chains are critical to facilitate innovation, productivity gains and economic growth both regionally and nationally. Hence it is important to have a coordinated approach in planning future development and in scaling existing port and freight infrastructure to advance its logistics performance.

Further, upgrading of the logistics performance of a region should not be reduced to mere investment in physical infrastructure and application of ICT, but also to regulatory and procedural issues regarding global shipping and international trade and to the management of ports and related infrastructure. Better logistics performance can create benefits in terms of trade expansion, economic diversification and also attract investment.

While the central government has developed port infrastructure across the country, and in many cases through private participation, states too now have become active in developing their coastlines.

Karnataka Ports Shipping & Logistics Summit 2019 is an effort to bring together the maritime stakeholders of the region, the state and from across the country to present the potential that exists, to deliberate on the challenges being faced and to evolve the way forward for a larger, inclusive and sustainable growth of the maritime industry in Mangalore and the state as a whole.

This half a day conference, spread across three focused sessions will engage policy makers, industry leaders, experts and stakeholders in serious discussions on meeting infrastructure and service demands; on ways to strengthen existing cargoes and to generate and attract additional cargo and derive ways for a collective and integrated approach that would enhance value in the logistics network and greater economic success to the region.

The Port

Mangalore, officially known as Mangaluru, is the main maritime gateway for the Indian state of Karnataka. It is located about 352 km west of the state capital, Bangalore, between the Arabian Sea and the Western Ghats mountain range. It is the second major city in Karnataka state in all aspects after the capital city Bangalore. It is the only city in Karnataka to have all modes of transport — Air, Road, Rail and Sea along with 5 other major cities in India. It is also the largest city in the Tulu Nadu region of Karnataka. Mangalore is the second best business destination in Karnataka after Bangalore and 13th in India.

The container cargo handled at the port recorded a growth of 13.95 per cent in terms of TEUs and 10.10 per cent in terms of tonnage. The port handled 1,31,613 TEUs of containers during 2018-19 as against 1,15,498 TEUs in the previous fiscal. In terms of tonnages, it stood at 1.91 MT (1.74 MT) during the period. The port targeted for the year 2019-20 is considered as 44.00 Million Tonnes.

NMPT was awarded the ‘Swachh Sarvekshan’ award consecutively for 2017 and 2018, for being the cleanest amongst the 12 major ports in the country.

The major commodities exported through the Port are Iron Ore Concentrates & Pellets, Iron Ore Fines, POL Products, Granite Stones, Containerized Cargo, etc. The major imports of the Port are Crude and POL products, LPG, Coal, Limestone, Timber logs, Finished Fertilizers, Liquid Ammonia, Phosphoric Acid, Other Liquid Chemicals, Containerized cargo, etc.

Potential of Karnataka

Exports from Karnataka have been on the rise, contributing to about 13% of India’s overall exports. It is one of the 17 states to have an Export Strategy, resulting in export oriented industrial growth. However, compared to the state’s contribution to the EXIM trade, a lot more is desirable on the infrastructure front. While the difficult terrain of Western Ghats poses logistic challenge, on the other hand a well developed national highway network connecting Karnataka to the ports at Chennai, Ennore, Krishnapatnam, Kattupalli and Cochin provide additional gateways to the Far East and West. The state has an operational ICD at Whitefield, one of the busiest in the country. Additionally, 7 CFSs and 1 air freight station take care of last mile and hinterland connectivity. The state has formal approvals for 62 SEZs, 41 notified SEZs, and 25 exporting SEZs. Karnataka’s contribution in EXIM is evident from 422 operational EOUs, the maximum in any state in India.

The state’s key industries are in sunrise sectors - automotive, textiles, aerospace, agro products such as gherkins, granite, furniture, pharmaceuticals, engineering, electronics and telecom. Karnataka is poised to be the bright spot among India’s EXIM cargo hubs. Being the IT capital of India, it is time for exporters and importers of KARNATAKA to stake claim to ‘Smart Logistics Solutions’ to transport valued cargo with ‘EASE’.
