Dharamtar port is on the right bank of the Amba river (i.e., Dharamtar creek) and is 10 miles (16 km) from its mouth.[1] Approximately 2 km (1.2 mi) from Wadkhal village on NH-17. The port is 0.5 km (0.31 mi) from the state highway that runs through Pen to Alibag and is 2 km (1.2 mi) away from National Highway 17 (MumbaiGoa). The port is also adjacent to Mumbai–Goa–Konkan railway line with an approved rail siding. It is a tri-modal port with rail (Dharamtar has an approved rail siding, the construction for which is under way).

It is 25.9 km (16.1 mi) away from Nhava Sheva with road and sea links, to Nhava Sheva and Mumbai ports in Maharashtra, India.[1]

Services[edit]

Some of the services it offers are container transportation by sea/road (rail proposed), bulk and break bulk cargo transport by sea/road, warehousing and distribution for all commodities, CFS facility, customs-notified warehousing (2,40,000 sq. ft of covered space), empty container management, container repairs and customs clearance.

Dharamtar Infrastructure Ltd., a joint venture company of United Shippers Ltd. and PNP Maritime Services Pvt. Ltd.,[2][3] which runs Dharamtar port[A] have signed a cooperation agreement with The Indira Container Terminal Pvt. Ltd., to facilitate value-added services and cost-saving logistics solutions for cargoes handled at ICT terminals.[4]

Transport[edit]

Dharamtar port is a unique tri-modal port with focus on logistics engineering. It handles container transportation as well as bulk and break bulk transportation by road, sea and rail (under development). Dharamtar port also carries out transshipment of containers.[2] It is known for providing special scheduled barge services using the Inland water mode.

As far as the pier of this port the creek is at all times navigable. Steamers up to 200 tons can approach this port. Dharamtar upstream navigation is difficult.[5] At ordinary high tides, boats of 15 tons, and at spring tides boats of 25 tons can go to Nagothana, 14 miles (23 km) east. Steamer services ply daily between Mumbai and Dharamtar.

Warehousing[edit]

The port has warehousing and distribution for all commodities. The Port is well equipped, cost-effective with warehousing space which is customs notified. Dharamtar's scalable and modern warehousing space is ideal for shippers, with cargo generation or end use within reasonable trucking distance from Nhava Sheva.

Rail siding[edit]

Dharamtar port, with its ongoing rail siding development[6] will soon be able to handle cargo across the regions. In future, a sizeable portion of Dharamtar's container transportation as well as bulk and break bulk transport will be carried by rail transport.
