About Us

The Port of Mumbai is administered by a statutory autonomous corporation known as the Mumbai Port Trust. The Chairman, Dy. Chairman and 19 other Trustees, representing various interests connected with Port activities such as Shippers, Labour, State Government etc. constitute the Board which looks after the administration of the Port. The day-to-day administration, however, is carried out by the Heads of Departments under the supervision and control of the Chairman and Dy. Chairman.

Mumbai Port has carved an unique niche for itself in the Indian commercial geography. The port has completed 134 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 neighborhood, it caters to about 10.44 % of the total sea borne handled by Major Ports of the country in terms of volume. It handles about 19.54 % of POL traffic and 3.38 % of Container traffic (in terms of TEUs) handled by Major Ports of India.

The Port of Mumbai has long been the principal gateway of India. It is situated almost 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.
