Mundra Port is celebrating its 25th anniversary as one of the largest ports globally. Since its first ship berthed in 1998, the port has grown to become a crucial trade gateway and a multimodal hub that drives trade and economic progression. It has contributed over Rs. 2.25 lakh crore to the state and national exchequer in the past 25 years and generated employment exceeding 7.5 crore man-days. Mundra Port handles over 155 MMT of maritime cargo, which constitutes nearly 11% of India’s total, and serves as the EXIM gateway for container traffic.
Adani Group Chairman Gautam Adani described Mundra as a beacon of possibilities and a testament to foresight, tenacity, and a united community. CEO Karan Adani highlighted the transformation of Mundra in just 25 years, from a barren land to India’s EXIM gateway and a global hub for trade and commerce. Mundra Port offers world-class infrastructure, state-of-the-art facilities, and all-weather capabilities, making it the preferred choice for major global shipping lines.
Mundra Port has also been at the forefront of eco-conscious activities, undertaking mangrove afforestation and conservation. The Adani Foundation, with its commitment to the community, has uplifted towns and villages through education, healthcare, and infrastructure. The region has seen improvements in education, healthcare, road connectivity, and the standard of living, thanks to the Adani Group’s emphasis on corporate social responsibility.
