VISAKHAPATNAM: Visakhapatnam, the port city with the presence of the world class Visakha Container Terminal (VCT), has witnessed a variety of cargoes and is now planning to expand its horizon further, targeting new cargoes.
Dr D.K. Srinivas, IRS, Commissioner of Customs, Visakhapatnam, after having taken charge recently, visited Visakha Container Terminal to understand the cargo growth potential wherein new cargoes like white goods (electrical and electronics), FMCG products, fruit imports, etc., were discussed, and how VCT could be the gateway on the East Coast of India catering to the vast hinterland.
The Customs Commissioner assured that Visakhapatnam Customs is ready to give full support to transform the idea into reality for the benefit of the trade.
Vizag has always been known for its hinterland rich in metal and minerals. Imports of finished goods landing in the port city would be the beginning of a new chapter and would take it closer to becoming the Logistics hub of the State.
