Indian ports handled more cargo in July over the last year after two consecutive months of decline. Volume growth at the ports rose by over three per cent in July, a report by investment banker Goldman Sachs Group said; and this growth is led by iron ore, fertiliser and other cargo. Some of these positives were offset by negative trends in coal- and oil and gas-related product volumes. Ports across the country handled 593.7 lakh tonnes of cargo in July.
