Bharat Mumbai Container Terminals (BMCT) in Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) is set to begin operations on February 2nd, 2018. It is the biggest single-container terminal built in India, and boasts record-high foreign direct investment (FDI).

The start of commercial operations at the first phase of the ₹7,915-crore, 4.8-million TEUs capacity terminal, will help State-owned JNPT double its capacity from the current 4.8 million TEUs.

The project involves construction of two berths, of 1 kilometre each, in two phases, with the first phase designed to handle 2.4 million TEUs at a cost of ₹4,719 crore. The second phase will add another 2.4 million TEUs by 2022, and involves an investment of ₹3,196 crore.

Container carriers agree that the opening of the biggest facility, and the fifth overall at JNPT, will make more berthing/window slots available at India’s busiest container gateway.
