Dear Friends

Welcome to the World Class Container Terminal on the East coast of India. I am very glad to present to you our website and I hope you find the information here relevant and useful.

Strategically situated on the Coromandel Coast in South-East India, DP World Chennai is today a major main line hub port in the Indian subcontinent. CCT is ranked at the 79th position among the top 100 container terminals in the world. We are one of the fast growing terminals in India with a CAGR of 20 %. This would not have been possible without your continued patronage and I take this opportunity to thank each one of you.

Our terminal is India’s first e-terminal and is proud to have a dedicated Customer Service Team to shoulder the responsibility of providing the best of services to our customers. We have always ensured that our terminal is a SAFE WORKING PLACE FOR ALL and with enhanced safety measures in all spheres of our operations has enabled us to become a “Fatal Free Terminal” for three consecutive years in a row.

The web site of DP World Chennai is yet another initiative to ensure and establish active communication with our valued customers. We also publish a quarterly newsletter “Outreach” for our Customers to enable them to keep abreast of the latest developments in the terminal and apprise them of future plans so that they may benefit from them. The link to “Outreach” is available on our website and I invite you to peruse it for more information.
