Chennai, India: Maersk Line India has begun moving fresh papayas from the Mangalore port in Karnataka State to Jebel Ali, Dubai, on its container vessels, opening a new gateway for Indian fruit exports to the Persian Gulf region, reports JOC.com.
 
Fruit shippers in Karnataka have long been using the ports of Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust (JNPT) and Chennai for their supply chain needs, requiring longer transits and extra logistics costs.
 
Maersk Line India said the one-stop freight link from cargo origins is more economical and reliable than air cargo transportation. “India is one of the largest producers of papayas in the world. This breakthrough shipment is likely to allow Indian traders to reach out to newer and larger markets, helping them to enable and tap the growth potential held by the fruit export market,” Franck Dedenis, subcontinent managing director, Maersk Line India, said.
