|Mumbai Port has carved an unique niche for itself in the Indian commercial geography. The port has completed 135 years of dedicated service to the nation. For decades, Mumbai Port remained India's premier port. Even today, with the development of other ports in the neighbourhood, it caters to about 11 % of the total sea borne handled by Major Ports of the country in terms of volume. It handles about 20 % of POL traffic and 21 % of General traffic handled by Major Ports of India.
The Port of Mumbai has long been the principal gateway of India. It lies midway (Latitude 18º 56.3' N, Longitude 72º 45.9' E) on the West coast of India and is gifted with a natural deep-water harbour of 400 sq. Kms. protected by mainland of Konkan on its east and island of Mumbai on its west. The deep waters in the harbour provide secure and ample shelter for shipping throughout the year. This gift of nature has been developed by the enterprise of men with vision and purpose, with the result that in the matter of natural facilities for shipping, Mumbai Port is one of the most fortunate amongst the world ports.
