MUMBAI: Private container terminal, Gateway Terminal, has shut operations at its Navi Mumbai facility after strike by employees, leading to congestion at Jawaharlal Nehru Port Trust and diversion of traffic to Pipavav Port in Gujarat.

"Some of the traffic is now moving to Pipavav Port (in Gujarat) while some are coming to JNPT and there is congestion," said a senior official from JNPT.

JNPT, which handles more than 55% of the country's container cargo, has three terminals at its facility. JNPT operates one container terminal, while DP World and APM Terminals operate the other two.

JNPT's own container terminal is operating at more than 120% capacity and extra cargo from Gateway Terminal has led to congestion.
