Break bulk cargo is expected to increase from 7.28 million tonnes in 1995 to 7.55 million tonnes by the year 2000.
Two berths (No. 15 - 16) have been designated for this purpose. The 457 m long wharves can handle ships of 60,000 tonnes displacement. The depth of water is 12.0 metres.
Conventional break bulk cargo handled here include manufactured goods, CKDs, iron and steel.
4 berths (B03 - B06) each measuring 200 metres in length and 15 metre in depth, are capable of handling ships of up to 80,000 tonne capacity
