Cargo volumes at state-owned ports decline 21 pc in April
Cargo volumes handled at India’s dozen state-owned major ports fell 21.08 per cent in April to 47.42 million tonnes (mt) from 60.08 mt a year ago as the coronavirus-induced demand compression roiled global trade. With the exception of Mormugao Port Trust, the remaining 11 major ports reported volume declines in April compared to the same period last year, according to the Shipping Ministry.
