Congestion at India’s Dhamra, Gangavaram ports delays unloading of coal
Capesize, Panamax and Supramax dry bulk ships waiting to unload coal at the key Indian east coast ports of Gangavaram and Dhamra are experiencing delays of up to a month due to congestion and bunching of vessels, shipping agency and market sources said. Dhamra, which receives coking and thermal coal, is witnessing delays of 28-30 days, while at Gangavaram ships have to wait for four to five days before they can berth to discharge their cargoes, an India-based shipping agency source said. “The buying [into] both ports has gone down to record lows because of the enormous amount of [coal] cargoes sitting at the port,” a shipbroker said. Most of the sources attributed the delays to lackluster demand for coal in India. Port officials at Dhamra and Gangavaram were not available to comment. “We have a vessel which was supposed to go to Dhamra, but the charterers just told [us] that she was diverted to Paradip,” another shipbroker said. Dhamra and Gangavaram had been facing congestion since June 18 and June 27, respectively, sources said.News schreiben
