Innovative and efficient logistics mix

Major ports

Essel Mining & Industries Limited (EMIL) uses a multi-modal logistics approach in the delivery of material. The nearest port is located at a distance of 300 km from our mines, and therefore we adopt an innovative and efficient logistics mix using a combination of rail and road for the movement of material to the port. A list of the major ports that we use for export is detailed below:

Haldia Port

Haldia is connected to the rest of the country through NH-41 and NH-6. The port is also directly connected to the Indian Railway system by broad gauge. Haldia has ample land for prospective port-based industries and port users. The average draft availability is 8.5m, which is being improved further. Haldia has state-of-the-art radar surveillance through Automatic Identification System (AIS) and Vessel Traffic Management System (VTMS) for effective and safe guidance to vessels.

Paradip Port

One of the major ports of India, Paradip, serves the eastern and central parts of the country. The port mainly deals with bulk cargo. The port has in place an ambitious expansion programme to double its present capacity in order to meet the ever increasing demand.

Vizag Port

The Vizag Port plays a crucial role as the middle point distribution base for the southern, eastern, central and northern states of India. Described as the brightest jewel of all Indian major ports for its outstanding performance and productivity, the Visakhapatnam Port serves as a catalyst in spurring domestic and international trade.
