The Hazira Port

Located on the west coast of India the Hazira Port Pvt. Ltd. is approximately 25 km from Surat city and 250 km from Mumbai.

Strategic Location:

The port has a great potential to serve as a 'Gateway Port' catering to diversified industry clusters in the hinterlands of North, West and Central India. These hinterlands together contribute about 65% of country’s containerized traffic.

Port location is strategic. Major industrial clusters are located within 200km reach of the port, in the Vadodara-Ankleswar-Hazira-Vapi belt. This industrially vibrant belt has the honor of being the largest industrial cluster in India. In addition, at least 12 Special Economic Zones (SEZs) fall in the Vadodara-Hazira belt, resulting in escalation of demand for container port facilities.

The port also falls well within the planned Delhi Mumbai Industrial Corridor (DMIC) and the industries within Vadodara-Vapi.

The Hazira Port Pvt. Ltd. is strategically located on the country’s transport infrastructure arterial network- just 25 km away from Delhi-Mumbai mainline rail route and about 40km distant from National Highway (NH-8)

Rail & Road Connectivity

The Hazira Port Pvt. Ltd. is linked to both NH-6 and NH-8 (part of Golden Quadrilateral road network) connecting to the arterial National Highway between Delhi & Mumbai and traverses further to Central India. To further improve road logistics, the government is planning 6-lane widening of the existing roads between port and the national and state highways.

A number of infrastructure initiatives are strengthening the Port linkages to key industrial and export hubs. The Gujarat Industrial Development Board (GIDB) has envisaged a multi-modal transport corridor from Hazira Port Pvt. Ltd. connecting to rail and road trunk routes. The Rail Vikas Nigam Limited (RVNL), Industries, Roads and other Departments as well as Gujarat Maritime Board of the Government of Gujarat have progressed planning of the proposed rail and road corridors. Indian Railways also plans to connect the port to the proposed Delhi-Mumbai Dedicated Freight Corridor (DFC) with a spur line of about 35km. This future linkage will enhance port’s connectivity.
