About the organization:
Commissioned in 1870 Kolkata Port has recently celebrated its 141st birthday. The journey of the Port continues through the tortuous process of ebb and tide, expectancy and despair, intricately woven with the varying draft/ siltation of the river Hooghly as it continues to adapt and re-engineer itself in newer locales and functions.Kolkata, the first Major Port of India, was once the premier port of the country but since 1966-67 faced a steady decline in its fortunes being relegated to third, fourth, fifth and sixth positions. However due to wholehearted efforts of all, there had been a steady flourish in cargo and vessel handling and in different spheres of Port activity from 2004-05 to 2007-08 when our only riverine Port was positioned in the second and third slots respectively, competing with other sea ports of the country.There prevailed a slight lull since 2008-09 with some adverse geo-morphological changes in the river regime, a general economic downturn and a flight of POL Crude cargo to a neighbouring port. In 2010-11 we handled 47.545 million tonnes of cargo with the distinction of handling the highest number of vessels. We stand third both in Coking Coal and Container handling and also had the distinction of having registered the highest growth of POL traffic
