Cargo ports to come up

To reduce dependence on roads for cargo movement and to reduce the costs, JNPT will be setting up satellite ports at Wardha, Aurangabad and Surat, according to Union Shipping Minister Nitin Gadkari. Wardha and Aurangabad (both in Maharashtra) will have dry ports from where the cargo will be moved by railway, while at Surat there will be a water port, Gadkari said. Cargo worth Rs 16,000 crore from or to the Marathwada region of Maharashtra passes through JNPT.
