  • BPCL begins coastal shipping of hazardous cargo from Kochi Refinery to Hazira Port

Coastal shipping of hazardous cargo, like acrylic acid, has begun with the first coastal consignment of two tank containers from BPCL-Kochi Refinery to Hazira Port, Gujarat last week, loaded onboard SSL Visakhapatnam from the International Container Transhipment Terminal (ICTT), Vallarpadam. This marks a shift in the transportation of tank containers from road to sea mode and is a major step toward the promotion of coastal shipping that is being encouraged by the Ministry of Ports, Shipping & Waterways under the Sagarmala programme, said a report.
