The International Container Transshipment Terminal at Vallarpadam in Kerala, India, will open this month.

The INR32.50bn ($716.5m) terminal is expected to reduce the country’s dependence on foreign ports to handle transshipments.

The first phase of the terminal is expected to have a capacity of one million teu, and will consist of six Super-Post-Panamax quay cranes and an on-dock railhead serviced by a rail-mounted support crane.

DP World (Subcontinent) plans to begin work on the second phase of the project soon, according to ANI.
