Cargo handled by Indian ports fell in September after two months of growth as container and coal volumes dropped. Ports across the country handled 546.4 lakh tonnes of cargo last month, a decline of 0.4 percent over the last year, investment banker Goldman Sachs Group Inc. said in a report. Container, coal and “other cargo products” together contribute more than half of the total cargo volumes at Indian ports. A growth in volumes of liquid cargo—oil- and gas-related products—iron ore and fertiliser, however, offset part of the decline in overall volumes.
