Mundra Port

Mundra Special Economic Zone Ltd (MSEZL) was incorporated in November 2003, to set up an special economic zone (SEZ) at Mundra. MSEZL was merged with Gujarat Adani Port Ltd (GAPL) in April 2006 and the company was renamed as Mundra Port and Special Economic Zone Limited, to reflect the nature of business. The board of MPSEZL on November 21, 2011 has approved a proposal to change the company's name to Adani Ports and Special Economic Zone Ltd and this change in name from MPSEZL to APSEZL has come into effect from January 06, 2012.

The Port is strategically located for global trade. Situated on the northern coast of the Gulf of Kutch on the west coast of India, it provides a convenient international trade gateway to Europe, Africa, America and the Middle East. Mundra has a deep draft (12.5 - 17 meters) which enables large vessels like panamax and super post panamax carriers to dock alongside its berth.

The port has the world’s largest fully mechanised coal terminal with a capacity of 60 million tonnes per annum (MTPA).
